Ring your bells for Armistice Day
Join houses of worship across Massachusetts
in ringing your bells for peace
Date: November 11, 2013 (Monday)
Time: 11:00 a.m.
Before it became "Veterans Day" in 1954, November 11 was known as "Armistice Day" - a holiday "to be dedicated to the cause of world peace". The first Armistice Day was November 11, 1918 when World War I (the "war to end wars") ended. Millions had been killed or wounded, and bells were rung everywhere at 11:00 a.m. on November 11 for many years (11/11 at 11). This year, please consider returning to the great tradition of ringing bells -- church bells and bells at any house of worship from any faith tradition -- at 11 a.m. on 11/11.
Let's rededicate ourselves to the cause of world peace.
