Governor Walker issued a proclamation for a Day of Mourning to be held Friday, Dec. 21. 

A moment of silence is to be observed at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 21, to honor the 20 children and six educators who lost their lives in the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary on Dec. 14. 

“Newtown and the State of Connecticut are still reeling from the terrible loss of life last Friday,” Governor Walker said. “Governor Malloy has called for a Day of Mourning in Connecticut and asks that states across the nation also remember the victims and their families in a moment of silence. This is also a moment to honor the bravery of Sandy Hook Elementary staff and the first responders. During difficult times such as these, it is important that we stand together to support our neighbors, who are suffering.”

Across Wisconsin on Friday, Dec. 21, at 9:30 a.m., a moment of silence will be observed. It is also asked that places of worship and government buildings with the capability ring bells 26 times in honor of each of the lives that were lost.
