MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker has declared Friday as a “Day of Mourning” to remember the 20 children and six adults killed in last Friday’s school rampage in Newtown Connecticut.

Walker asked Wisconsinites to observe a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. Friday. And he asked churches and other buildings that can ring bells to do so 26 times, to honor each of the lives that were lost.

Walker said Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy has asked states across the country to join his in a moment of silence. He also called it an opportunity to honor the bravery of the staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the first responders to the tragedy.

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