As the nation continues to mourn the innocent lives lost in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday, musicians around the country are organizing so send a message of sympathy and unity.
All musicians are asked to observe a moment of silence at every musical performance in the USA on Saturday, December 22nd, 2012 at 10:00 PM in whatever time zone they are performing.
In the circle of musicians includes Jimmy Greene, the father of Ana Marquez-Greene, one of the children lost. Musicians in all genres of music, as well as other performing artists are asked to join in honoring the memory of the victims, and in resolving to help prevent this kind of senseless violence from happening again.
This action will also show that artists stand unified in their desire to prevent such tragedies in the future.
