On the morning of Wednesday, April 14, Abington High School seniors in Ms. Pflaumer’s honors English class walked to the rotary on Gliniewicz Way. It was their break out of the classroom.

At the rotary, the class posed for a picture. They talked about the flags being at half staff.

A quick research found on mass.gov stated that the flags were half staffed in honor and remembrance of United States Capitol Police Officer William “Billy” Evans.

Evans, a Massachusetts native, was killed earlier this month in the second attack on the US Capitol this year. His body lies in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
