Gregoire asks for statewide moment of silence Friday for Conn. shooting victims

Gov. Chris Gregoire is asking Washington to observe a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. PST Friday for the victims of last week’s shootings in Newtown, Conn.

Gregoire says she is making the request to show solidarity with Connecticut on Friday, a day Conn. Gov. Dannel Malloy has declared a statewide day of mourning.

“We are all heartbroken by this senseless violence,” Gregoire said in a statement. “The courageous acts of the staff at Sandy Hook were truly selfless and heroic. The people of Newtown will long be in our prayers.”

Malloy said in a letter that the support states such as Washington have shown for his state mean a lot.

“In the last few days, the outpouring of love and compassion from your state and from around the world has been overwhelming,” Malloy wrote in a letter to Gregoire. “… the people of Connecticut will be forever grateful.”
