“Let the Bells of Freedom Ring!”
In 1963, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed that bells across our nation should ring at 2:00pm on the 4th of July as a national celebration of our nation’s Independence. He was renewing a very old tradition of celebrating our independence that had fallen out of fashion.
Across the country bells were rung 13 times for the original 13 colonies.
Join us in renewing this tradition.
This Friday, Independence Day, pause a minute at 2:00pm and join your fellow Americans in ringing a bell to celebrate our wonderful country and our freedom.
