President Ford's Mourning Period is Over


US flags no longer need to fly at half staff.

The official month long mourning period for President Gerald Ford has come to an end.

Yesterday, a large group gathered for a special ceremony at Ford's Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids.

Boy Scouts helped lower a flag that had been flying at half staff since the president's death.

The flag will be presented to the Ford Family, along with a book of condolences with more than 100,000 signatures.
