FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 1, 2018) – In accordance with the proclamation by U.S. President Donald Trump, and with respect for the memory of the Reverend Billy Graham, Gov. Matt Bevin has directed both American and state flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Friday, March 2 until sunset to honor Rev. Graham.
“The world lost an extraordinary man last week,” said Gov. Bevin. “The Reverend Billy Graham was an advisor to presidents and world leaders, and was a beloved pastor to all people. His grace, boldness, clarity and conviction for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ have made a powerful and eternal impact. He positively changed the course of history, and his voice will be greatly missed.”
Gov. Bevin encourages all individuals, businesses, organizations, and government agencies to join in this tribute of lowering the flag to honor the memory of Rev. Graham.
