Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy has asked people across his state to observe a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m., which will mark exactly one week since Adam Lanza gunned down 20 children and six adults at the school. The White House has said President Barack Obama will privately observe the moment of silence.
Nationwide, places of worship and buildings with bells have been asked to ring them 26 times, for the victims at the school. Officials and clergy in many other states have said they will participate.
