ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is encouraging schools statewide to observe a moment of silence Friday ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The anniversary falls on Sunday. Dayton says schools should choose a time Friday for their momentary pause. He is also ordering flags to be lowered to half-staff at all state buildings from sunrise to sunset on Sunday.

Dayton was a U.S. senator at the time of the terrorist attacks.

    Don’t remind me that he was a Senator. Maybe he should pack up and hide out at Fort Snelling on 9/11.

      This person isn’t the real G Dog.

      I am.

      And I DON’T approve of this message.

    At least he is remembering the day as it should be remembered…as an act of terrorism. Your president in Washington D.C. wants it to be remembered as a day of service…..go figure.

    A moment of silence is a prayer. So stupid.

    Dayton and Ellison should visit a mosque on 9/11 so they can pay their respects to their heroes.
