Moment of silence today for the victims in Arizona
If Penn Quarter seems unusually quiet today at 11 a.m., this is why. The President has issued the following statement:
“Tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. eastern standard time, I call on Americans to observe a moment of silence to honor the innocent victims of the senseless tragedy in Tucson, Arizona, including those still fighting for their lives. It will be a time for us to come together as a nation in prayer or reflection, keeping the victims and their families closely at heart.”
Many local businesses are participating, including Congress.
