Moment of silence for Sandy Hook, President to celebrate life of Senator Inouye, State Capitol and Punchbowl preps

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR SANDY HOOK

At exactly 4:30 this morning Hawaii time, the nation will observe a moment of silence for the tragic victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting. It has been exactly one week since a gunman killed his Mom at home then went on a rampage, killing 20 children and 6 adults at the Newtown campus. Governor Abercrombie will ask Hawaii residents to observe a moment of silence in the victims' memory at 9:30 our time, the time of the shooting in Connecticut.

PRESIDENT TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF SENATOR INOUYE

President Obama will help celebrate the life of Senator Daniel Inouye. The late Senator's casket will be moved from the U.S. Capitol Rotunda to Washington National Cathedral for a Memorial starting just after 5 Hawaii time. Hawaii Representatives Colleen Hanabusa and Mazie Hirono will be readers. General Eric Shinseki, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Vice President Joe Biden will offer reflections. Then President Obama will give his tribute to a man he calls "a True American Hero."

LIVE COVERAGE ON AIR AND ONLINE

We'll have live coverage of the tribute to Senator Inouye starting with Keoki Kerr in Washington D.C. on Sunrise starting at 4:30 on KGMB.

STATE CAPITOL AND PUNCHBOWL PREPS

Also, a look ahead to local plans to say aloha and what you need to know. Ramsay Wharton will be live at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl with details.

Hope you can join us as the nation honors Senator Inouye.

Aloha,

Tannya Joaquin
