Ring a Bell for Peace on 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day Nov 11 at 11
Bell will ring at 11 AM.
The Veterans for Peace chapters across the nation are meeting on street corners in major cities to commemorate the original Armistice Day by ringing bells 11 times at 11:00 AM on November 11 as was done at the end of World War I when the world came together in realization that war is so horrible that we mist end it now. Veterans for Peace Chapter 101 invites those with a commitment to peace to join in the ringing of bells to focus on the end of horror of war rather than celebrate it.
After the solemn gathering the 11 AM bell ringing and a minute of silence, there will be an opportunity to address the gathering with brief, personal reflections. WILPf co-sponsors the event. Raging Grannies will sing peace songs. Khalilah Ramirez and Sharat Lin will perform the Dance of Peace.
