(Newser) – At 9:30 this morning, exactly one week after 20 children and six teachers were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, bells will toll 26 times in memorial for the terrible tragedy, reports the Hartford Courant. Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy has called for a "Day of Mourning" today, and many governors across America have said they, too, will hold a moment of silence and ring bells for Newtown. (Though Reuters notes the National Cathedral intends to ring its bell 28 times, in most places no bell will toll for Nancy Lanza, who has been omitted from most memorials.)
