Fairfield County Can Observe Moment Of Silence For Boston

FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Connecticut residents have been asked to observe a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m., Monday, to honor the victims of last week's Boston Marathon bombing.

“Connecticut stands with Massachusetts in honoring the victims of the tragedy last week in Boston,” Gov. Dannel Malloy said in a statement asking for the moment of silence. “I’ve directed state agencies to join Massachusetts in a moment of silence at 2:50 today, and am encouraging Connecticut residents to do the same. We thank law enforcement and first responders for their actions at the marathon and in the days that followed.  Our thoughts remain with the victims of this senseless tragedy and the families mourning the loss of their loved ones.”

“This is an opportunity not only to recognize those innocent people who taken from us or injured one week ago and the first responders who bravely came to their aid, but to reaffirm our resolve against those who attack and threaten our freedom,” said Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman.

Malloy and Wyman will observe the moment of silence at Minuteman Park in front of the State Armory in Hartford.
