Breed Calls for City Flags at Half-Staff Following Texas School Massacre

Mayor London Breed ordered all city flags to fly at half-staff through Saturday in response to the Uvalde, Texas school shooting that claimed the lives of 19 children and two adults Tuesday afternoon.

“It’s unbearable that within the past 10 days, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren have been taken from us through heinous acts of violence,” wrote Breed in a tweet.

The Texas mass shooting comes just 10 days after 10 people were killed in a supermarket in Buffalo.
