Madison WI  (WSAU)  -  Governor Scott Walker has issued a proclamation for a Day of Mourning on December 21, 2012. A moment of silence is also to be observed at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, December 21, 2012 to honor the 20 children and 6 educators, who lost their lives in the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14th.

“Newtown and the State of Connecticut are still reeling from the terrible loss of life last Friday,” said Governor Walker. “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.

During difficult times such as these, it is important that we stand together to support our neighbors, who are suffering.”
