No Moment of Silence at WSU Spokane

Evidently, the Chanclor oversees this facility and didn’t feell it was appropriate to have a moment of silence called for by the current US President.

The message from Pres. Obama went out on Sunday calling for the moment of silence to take place at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time Monday morning. That is 8 a.m. local time and by the time we received the information it was too late to put word out through our internal communication channels.

We hope people received word through the national media asking all of us as individuals to observe that moment of silence for the victims of the tragedy in Arizona, without having to be instructed to do so by an institution.

We responded to the president's proclamation calling for flags to be flown at half-mast; the campus flag at the Sirti Building was at half-mast on Monday, Jan. 10, 2011.

Update to my comment about the flag being at half-mast--it will remain that way through Friday, Jan. 14, 2011, per the directive from Gov. Gregoire we received Monday morning.
