Illinois will mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination with a moment of silence and flags flying at half-staff.

Gov. Pat Quinn will observe a moment of silence at 1 p.m. at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont where he's scheduled to address the 11th Annual Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus Foundation conference. That's the time when Kennedy was pronounced dead on Nov. 22, 1963.
