Moment Of Silence
Gov. Pat Quinn has declared Friday as a day of mourning for the victims of the shooting massacre last week in Connecticut.
At fire stations around the city on Sunday, Chicago firefighters stopped for a moment of silence at 7:46 a.m. – marking the moment 10 years ago when the first plane hit the World Trade Center during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
An Illinois law requiring a daily moment of silence in public schools may be set to make a comeback after being blocked for two years.
