United States

Would it be appropriate for both men, women and children to wear a black armband for the next nine days as a show our grief?

Thank you.

Eternal rest grant him, O Lord, and may Your light shine upon him forever!

No, that is a secular practice. I know of no ecclesiastical precedent.
