Flags lowered for President Kennedy

By The Herald Staff | 11/22/2013

TOPEKA — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback today ordered flags lowered until sundown in recognition of a national day of remembrance for President John F. Kennedy.

Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago — Nov. 22, 1963 — by a sniper during an appearance in Dallas.

“The legacy of John F. Kennedy is in the strength of the memories we hold of his presidency and vision for America,” Brownback said. “I encourage all Kansans to engage in a moment of silence today in remembrance of a dedicated American servant.”
