Governor Calls for Moment of Silence Friday


CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead is joining other governors from across the nation in requesting citizens observe a moment of silence and remembrance to honor the victims of the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. The moment of silence will take start at 9:30 a.m., Friday, December 21. Governor Mead also asks that places of worship ring their bells 26 times during that moment. Governor Dannel Malloy from Connecticut asked governors to join in this remembrance.

“We were all shaken by the loss of lives,” Governor Mead said. “I believe it is fitting that Wyoming join the nation in pausing to remember the 20 children and six teachers taken too soon. Please join me Friday morning at 9:30 in silence to reflect on this tragedy.”
