President Obama asks country for moment of silence

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - President Obama is asking Americans to observe a moment of silence today to honor the victims of the Arizona shooting.

The President will observe the tribute with White House staff at 11 am eastern time on the White House lawn.

In wake of the shooting, Congress has postponed all major legislative business this week, including Wednesday's vote to repeal President Obama's health care law.

Instead, Congressional leaders will focus on any necessary actions in the shooting's aftermath.
