Celebrating Veterans Day In the Style of Original Armistice Day—Ringing a Bell for Peace
by Peace Worker
Veterans for Peace chapters across the nation gathered on street corners in major cities to commemorate the original Armistice Day by ringing bells 11 times at 11 am on the eleventh day of November. In San José, Chapter 101 held a ceremony in front of City Hall.
WWI ended on November 11th in 1918 and one year later the world came together in realization that war is so horrible it must end forever. That was the first Armistice Day; Congress officially changed the name to Veterans Day in 1954. Photos by Bob Jung.
