Governor Abbott Calls For Minute Of Silence To Honor Victims Of Paris Terrorist Attacks

AUSTIN - Consistent with the moment of silence to be held by all 28 nations of the European Union on Monday, Nov. 16 at noon, Governor Greg Abbott this weekend issued a statewide call for Texans to take part and hold a minute of silence tomorrow at 12:00 CT to honor the memory of the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks.

"Texas' solidarity and longstanding relationship with France is well established," said Governor Abbott. "When Texas declared its independence from Mexico, France was among the first nations to recognize that independence. We have not forgotten France's commitment to the Lone Star State and Texas will join with other states and nations tomorrow to honor the victims and condemn the cowardly terrorist attacks. I urge all Texans to hold a minute of silence at noon tomorrow and pray for the victims and families of the despicable attacks that took place in Paris."
