Wait Chapel Carillon to Honor Newtown Victims

Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy is declaring December 21 a Day of Mourning in his state, and he is asking Connecticut citizens to observe a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. In addition, he is asking houses of worship and government buildings that have the capability to ring bells 26 times during that moment in honor of each life that was taken at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Malloy sent letters to governors through the National Governors Association, asking other states to join Connecticut on Friday morning in a moment to reflect and mourn.

The carillon in Wait Chapel will ring its bells 26 times at 9:30 a.m. on Friday in a show of support, said chaplain Tim Auman.
