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

Our Patches across the country will take part in a Web Moment of Silence on Friday, and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has requested that state residents pause to remember those lost last week.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has asked for a statewide moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. Friday, and Patches in Michigan and across the country will join in a Web Moment of Silence to mark the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.

Snyder said the moment of silence was requested by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, who issued a proclamation calling on the citizens of Connecticut to observe December 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.

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.
