(DES MOINES) – Gov. Terry E. Branstad today asked Iowans to honor our fellow fallen Americans in Newtown, Connecticut, with a moment of silence on Friday, December 21, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. CDT, one week after the senseless tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The moment of silence comes at the request of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy who issued a proclamation calling on the citizens of Connecticut to observe December 21, 2012, as a day of mourning. In addition, Gov. Malloy sent a letter to his colleagues in the other 49 states asking them to observe a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. local time in remembrance of the fallen.
