Stand Still for 17 minutes as Bells Ring Out--March 14 at 10 AM
Wed\nesday, March 14, Faith Communities are being asked to ring their bells at
10 AM, 17 times a minute for the duration of 17 minutes. You are welcome to
stand on our church lawn and be in solidarity with this faithful call for an end
to gun violence. The Stop Shooting Now movement is calling for an end to gun
violence. The National Student Walkout is set for next Wednesday, March 14th.
Students (and their families) across the country are demanding that Congress
take action NOW. At 10 AM, you are invited to stand in silence as we ring hand
bells, yoked as people united for an end to senseless violence. We will stand
for 17 minutes, one minute for each life that was lost in the recent school
shooting in Parkland, FL.
