Gov. Patrick, Boston Mayor Menino call for statewide moment of silence one week after bombings
Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Governor Deval L. Patrick, and One Fund Boston said today that they are calling upon Boston and all communities across Massachusetts to join together in a Moment of Silence Monday afternoon, exactly one week following the Boston Marathon bombings.
The minute of silence will take place at 2:50 p.m. to honor the victims of the attacks and their families. It will be followed by the ringing of bells throughout Boston and the Commonwealth.
Mayor Menino and Governor Patrick said through a spokesperson they are “humbled by the support shown by the public and the business community, and they continue to encourage everyone to visit onefundboston.org to make a donation to help the victims of this tragedy.”
