The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury is encouraging residents to observe a minute of silence for all of those who lost there lives on that day.

Here is a press release form the Police jury:

The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury recently passed a resolution of support encouraging residents to observe a moment of remembrance for victims and events which took place on 9/11.  The Police Jury joins several other government entities who have adopted similar resolutions for their community.

The resolution encourages residents to cease all work or other activity for one minute beginning at Noon, on September 11, 2011. First responders, such as fire and police departments and houses of worship are scheduled to salute this occasion with the sound of sirens and bells across the country.

The U.S. Senate originally introduced this effort to call on all Americans to come together as a Nation to mourn the loss of lives and loved ones that fateful day.
