Veterans For Peace and MOVE to AMEND

in remembering

Armistice Day, November 11


“a day dedicated to the cause of world peace.”

The Armistice of 1918, ending the terrible slaughter of World War I, was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, signaling that the world had pulled back from the brink of disaster. For many years, churches rang their bells on Armistice Day, to commemorate the hope of a world without war. In 1954, Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day. It's time to reclaim the historic meaning of the day: Ring the bells 11 times at 11 o'clock, and declare your conviction that peace is possible.

Let your church's bells ring eleven times at eleven o'clock on November eleventh, and join us in renewing the hope for peace.
