Everything's Coming Up Peace Bells

 

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

BELLS RINGING PEACE AROUND THE WORLD

On World Storytelling Day, March 20, at 6 p.m., veterans, those who care about veterans, and peace and justice activists, will gather in Guild Hall at Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis. The event, sponsored by Veterans for Peace Chapter 27 and the Plymouth Church Global Connections Committee, culminates several months of artistic activity, with veterans designing and casting their own bells in the spirit of the original 1918 Armistice. For over 25 years Veterans for Peace has celebrated November 11 with bells ringing 11 times at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, when the Armistice ending World War I was signed. It was a time when the world came together for a number of years to say "This war was so horrendous we must never do it again". It was a time when the President of the United States could make a Memorial Day speech, saying, "We are gathered here to honor those who've given their lives in service, and there is no greater honor we could offer than to do everything possible to keep future wars from occurring."
