Let Freedom Ring – Across the Nation

At 2 p.m. on July Fourth (EDT), All Americans are asked to stop briefly and give our country a ring … well, THREE rings to be exact.

On July 4, 1963, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed the ringing of bells nationwide with the words, “Let’s ring freedom bells!” Since then, many Americans have forgotten to keep the tradition going. Let’s start again!

From one American to another, I ask all citizens to help me revive the ringing of bells at 2 p.m. this July Fourth in celebration of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

It’s easy. Ring a bell, shake your keys, tap a glass or find a bell-ringing app on your smartphone. It will give each of us in this country a much-needed sense of unity and connection to our past as one nation, one people.

Bob Farling of the Lafayette Chapter and the 2000 Ohio Society President loves this tradition and encourages all members of the Ohio Society to participate.
