"The hearts of Americans continue to ache in the wake of Monday's senseless bombings. As we offer our prayers and condolences to the City of Boston and those affected by this act of terror, let us also pay tribute to the innocent victims who were killed and the scores who were injured.
"In honor of these victims, and in coordination with today's Presidential Proclamation, I have ordered that flags at all State buildings be flown at half-staff until sunset on Saturday, April 20, 2013. I invite all Arizonans to join in this special tribute.
"While words may be of small comfort to the people of Boston and the State of Massachusetts in the aftermath of this tragedy, I pray that they know we stand with them in eternal solidarity and support."
