Oklahomans wear green Friday for Newtown victims
Remember to wear green Friday. Here’s information from the governor’s office:
OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin has declared Friday, December 21, 2012, as a day of remembrance in Oklahoma for the victims of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting. The governor’s proclamation asks Oklahomans to observe the day of remembrance with a moment of silence, reflection or prayer.
Governor Fallin issued the proclamation at the request of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, who is asking other states to join Connecticut in observing a day of remembrance Friday for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
“As Oklahomans, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims, their families and the entire community of Newtown, Connecticut,” Fallin said. “I encourage all Oklahomans to take time to observe this day with a moment of silence, a moment of prayer or reflection for the families and innocent victims of this horrible tragedy.”
Additionally, the governor encourages Oklahomans to join her in wearing green Friday, the Sandy Hook school color, in remembrance of the fallen.
