Acworth Patch will go dark at 9:30am on Friday, Dec. 21. And so will thousands of other websites across the country. Patch and other online companies are taking part of an online moment of silence in memory of the victims of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The event will last one minute.
As of 6pm Thursday, more than 130,000 people took the pledge on Causes.com. Websites wishing to participate can embed a green ribbon on their site, like the one you see in this article. Twitter users are also asked to use the hashtag #momentforSandyHook to show their support.
