Solemn Bell Ringing to Support Students Against Guns. Wed 3/14 from 10-10.17 a.m. Honolulu

This Wednesday, March 14, 2018, from 10 to 10.17 a.m. many public high schools in Hawaii are staging a walk out and silent vigil to commemorate the senseless violence that occurred a few weeks ago at the high school in Parkland, Florida.  As an act of  solidarity with these efforts, several churches are choosing to ring their church bells, solemnly, for those 17 minutes.

This effort was initiated by St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church, Honolulu.

The Church of the Crossroads has announced a vigil starting at 9.50 a.m, dedicated to the effort to end the senseless gun violence that occurred in Florida and that continues to plague our nation.

This church, like others, will ring bells from 10:00 – 10:17 am, in memory of the 17 students killed in Parkland, as well as the hundreds of other persons killed in mass shootings since Columbine High School in 1999, and the tens of thousands of Americans killed annually by gun violence.

Church of the Crossroads, 1212 University Avenue, Honolulu.  949-2220 has issued an open invitation to anyone who cares to attend.

If you would like your church to participate in this commemorative act, please spread the word and take the idea to your church leaders.
