Acting Governor Ray Tenorio is calling for all government agencies to lower their flags to half-staff as a mark of respect for those lives that were senselessly cut short in the tragic events in Las Vegas on the night of Oct. 1. The flags will remain at half-staff until Oct. 6 in line with President Trump’s proclamation.
“These acts of hatred must stop, and those discussions will be had in the days to come. But today, let us join in prayer and mourning for those fathers, mothers, sons and daughters who were killed in an abhorrent action of a person who didn’t respect or honor the lives of others,” acting Governor Ray Tenorio said.
“I am encouraged that in the face of this senseless killing spree there are many who rushed to protect and help others, saving lives in the process. It is proof that there is love in this world. We on Guam, join in prayer with those around the nation and lift every person who was there, those who were injured and those who lost their lives as well as the family members who mourn them.”
