The Newtown Shootings: Patch to Take Part in Moment of Silence

Our Patches across the country will take part in a Web Moment of Silence on Friday.

Patch sites across the country will join in a Web Moment of Silence to mark the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy issued a proclamation calling on the citizens of Connecticut to observe Dec. 21, 2012, as a day of mourning. Malloy sent a letter to all the nation's governors asking them to observe a moment of silence in remembrance of the fallen.

“Mourning this tragedy has extended beyond Newtown, beyond the borders of Connecticut, and has spread across the nation and the world,” Malloy said in a statement. “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.”

Patch sites across the country will mark the tragedy at 9:30 a.m. EST.

Among other sites taking part in the Web Moment of Silence are AOL, Adobe, Foursquare, Hacker News, Duke University Jawbone, Salesforce and others.
