Gov. M. Jodi Rell is proclaiming a Day of Remembrance in Connecticut on the ninth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York.
Rell announced Thursday that U.S. and state flags will be flown at half staff Saturday. She is also asking Connecticut residents to observe a moment of silence at the time the first hijacked plane crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
Rell said she hopes the day is used to not only mourn and reflect, but to honor the memories of those who died in the terrorist attack.
Rell led an official state memorial in Westport on Tuesday to honor the 156 people with Connecticut ties who died during the attack.
