           HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) _ Gov. Tom Corbett is inviting Pennsylvanians to observe a moment of silence in honor of the victims of last week's school shooting in Connecticut.

             Corbett's office says he's asking for the moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. today, exactly one week after the shootings.
     
           Corbett says he'll join members of his staff and cabinet in a moment of silence. He says ``we mourn the loss of these innocent lives and pray for their heartbroken families and friends who are coping with their grief.''
