This in from city of San Marcos spokesperson Trey Hatt:

The city of San Marcos will join cities across America in observing a moment of silence tomorrow in remembrance of the lives lost in recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut, and other cities around the world.

The moment will begin at 2:20 p.m. coinciding with the start of attacks in Paris on Nov. 13.

“While San Marcos has endured adversity of its own this year, it is important to show solidarity and compassion for cities around the world that have suffered so much needless violence,” Mayor Daniel Guerrero said.

The moment of silence is being led by the National League of Cities, a national organization that serves as a resource and advocate for more than 19,000 cities, villages and towns.

Flags at city facilities have been flying at half-staff this week by presidential proclamation in honor of those killed in the last Friday’s terror attacks.
