Share thoughts on the Tucson shootings
President Obama will observe a moment of silence for the Arizona shooting victims Monday morning, and he called on all Americans to do so at the same time in a show of national unity.
In a Sunday statement issued by the White House, Obama said the moment of silence, which he will mark at 11 a.m. Eastern with staff on the White House South Lawn, will "honor the innocent victims of the senseless tragedy in Tucson, Ariz., including those still fighting for their lives."
"It will be a time for us to come together as a nation in prayer or reflection, keeping the victims and their families closely at heart," he said in the statement.
Obama signed a proclamation Sunday calling for flags to be flown at half-staff.
