Conn. governor requests nationwide moment of silence to honor Sandy Hook victims
On Tuesday, Connecticut’s Gov. Dannel Malloy signed a proclamation declaring Friday, December 21, 2012 a “Day of Mourning” in Connecticut. He has asked governors across the nation to consider having their states join Connecticut in a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
Governor Malloy has written a letter to every governor in the United States, asking each state to consider joining the State of Connecticut on Friday during this time of reflection and mourning.
“Mourning this tragedy has extended beyond Newtown, beyond the borders of Connecticut, and has spread across the nation and the world,” Governor Malloy said. “On behalf of the State of Connecticut, we appreciate the letters and calls of support that have been delivered to our state and to the family members during their hour of need.”
