Death of Barbara Bush

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                On this solemn day, we mourn the loss of Barbara Bush, 
                an outstanding and memorable woman of character. As a 
                wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, military 
                spouse, and former First Lady, Mrs. Bush was an 
                advocate of the American family. Mrs. Bush lived a life 
                that reminds us always to cherish our relationships 
                with friends, family, and all acquaintances. In the 
                spirit of the memory of Mrs. Bush, may we always 
                remember to be kind to one another and to put the care 
                of others first.

                As a mark of respect for the memory of Barbara Bush, I 
                hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, that the flag of the United States shall be 
                flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all 
                public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and 
                naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal 
                Government in the District of Columbia and throughout 
                the United States and its Territories and possessions 
                until sunset, on the day of interment. I also direct 
                that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same 
                period at all United States embassies, legations, 
                consular offices, and other facilities abroad, 
                including all military facilities and naval vessels and 
                stations.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                seventeenth day of April, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
                second.
