It has been more than a year since the bombing of the Nationalist House took place, marking the terrorist attack that would go on to kill more than a dozen more people in the preceding weeks. The bombing lasted all of 5 seconds, with the Nationalist House(seen left), partially collapsed due to structural damage. In the past year, investigators continue to peace together exactly what happened and how James Ronaldson was able to do such an horrific thing. Attacking our nation's head of state.
But as the Nation worked to figure out exactly what happened and who could've been responsible for the destruction, two other bombings occurred, one in Nox City at a Product Mart that claimed the lives of 12, and injured dozens more, and another at Mesa's Governor's mansion that killed two staffers of former Mesa Governor Kirk Paul, leading to the Federal Crimes Investigative Service to declare the bombings terroristic in nature.
"In honor of the victims of all who died or were injured in last year's bombings, I will lower the nation's flags on all state, local, county and federal government buildings for the duration of two weeks," said President McCallum. "It has been one year since these tragic bombings took place, and we should never forget the lives lost in the bombings. It was also a day that our country was attacked."
Jesstopian flags will remain at half staff until July 23, 2023 at 11:59 PM. Several families say they are hosting a vigil for the lives lost during all three bombings, and says a special church service will be held for those who died on July 21, 2022 and July 23, 2022. The times may vary depending on where you are within the country.
