Moment of Silence for Arizona victims: (Photos and #MomentofSilence)
Over Capitol Hill and the White House, the United States flag flies at half-staff. President Obama asked the nation to pause in a moment of silence at 11 a.m., remembering the "innocent victims of the senseless tragedy in Tucson, Ariz., including those still fighting for their lives."
The House of Representatives is not in session today, but House Sergeant at Arms Bill Livingood also requested Sunday that all members of Congress, staffers and visitors present on the House side of the Capitol join in the moment of silence.
Did you participate? I'd like to hear what you thought about in that moment. What did you remember or honor? What should we be thinking about during moments of silence?
Your Take: Does the silence help fight the fears and the anger?
