Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling on Monday called upon Norwalk citizens to devote a moment of silence on December 14, at 9:30 a.m. in observance of the one-year anniversary of the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

In marking the anniversary, Mayor Rilling joins Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and other public officials by recommending residents join together out of respect for those who lost their lives one year ago. Said Mayor Rilling, “The emotions that drew our community together in shared pain and sadness remain fresh even a year later. Of course this is especially true for the loved ones of those who lost their lives in the senseless shootings. It is appropriate for Norwalk residents to join once again, express condolences to our neighbors in Newtown and solidify our resolve to ensure such events do not happen again.”

Mayor Rilling has endorsed Governor Malloy’s request that all houses of worship observe a moment of collective mourning by ringing their bells 26 times at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 14 to honor the victims of the Sandy Hook shootings.

“Ringing the bells will allow us all to mourn the tragedy of a year ago and to remind ourselves of our obligation to work toward a better community,” said Mayor Rilling. “Even as we grieve over the events of a year ago, we can use this occasion to express a collective determination to enhance our neighborhood, boost our community and find harmony with our fellow citizens. I encourage donation to a local charity, volunteering time in the community and simple acts of kindness to one another.”
