Why flags are at half staff this week

President Barack Obama has order flags across the nation lowered to half staff this week in honor of the victims of the mass shooting in Arizona that took place on Saturday. In his proclamation, Obama called the shooting a “senseless act of violence.”

Flags in Southborough and across the nation will continue to fly at half staff until sunset on Friday, January 14.

It’s a shame that during such a sad time anyone would take the oportunity to show such a lack of compassion. Whatever your political views, people died or were injured. That’s what we should be thinking about and remembering.

What does that have to do with those who were injured or died? Do you have no heart or compassion? There is a time and place for all conversations but under this heading is not the place. Shame on you.
