Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is asking for charitable acts and a simple moment of reflection to mark the anniversary of the Sandy Hook school massacre.

In an op-ed piece offered Thursday for publication Sunday by the state’s newspapers and news web sites, Malloy suggests that church bells toll 26 times at 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 14th, once for each victim. He also suggested volunteering or making a charitable donation.

“The message of these two actions is simple: a moment to come together and mourn, followed by acts of kindness to one another,” the governor wrote.
