Gov. Dave Heineman is asking Nebraskans to observe a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Connecticut school shooting.
The national moment of silence is set for Friday at 9:30 a.m. Connecticut Gov. Daniel Malloy is also asking schools, churches and other facilities with bells to ring them 26 times to acknowledge each life lost. The shooting last week at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., killed 20 students and six staff members.
