9/11 Display

Governor Reeves asks citizens to hold a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday to remember lives lost during the terrorist attacks. Pictured above, a patriotic display can be seen on the front lawn of Harold Rutherford's, a Vietnam veteran, home on Lambert Cove in Hernando Friday afternoon. 

On Friday, September 10, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves signed Executive Order 1559 to proclaim September 11, 2021 as "Patriot Day and Day of Prayer and Remembrance.

The proclamation was made to signify the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The order also requires that all flags of the United States of America and the State of Mississippi be flown at half-staff on all buildings and grounds of the State of Mississippi and all areas of its jurisdiction beginning at sunrise until sunset on September 11, 2021.  

“Twenty years ago, our nation was devastated by the worst terrorist attacks in its history,” said Reeves. “Mississippi will never forget the innocent victims lost, and those who rose from the ashes of heartbreak to aid in rescue and recovery efforts and to defend the United States both here and abroad."
