Come One, Come All: Ring those bells of freedom!

Recently a woman wrote in to Dear Abby with a request of our nation.  She said that she was a Whitehouse Aid during the Kennedy administration.  The then-president made a proclimation that has fallen by the wayside.  Here is some of what she wrote:

“On July 4, 1963, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed the ringing of bells nationwide with the words, “Let’s ring freedom bells!” I was a White House aide then, and I vividly recall how exciting it was when bells rang across the nation coast to coast. 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 our country a much-needed sense of unity and connection to our past as one nation, one people.The Ironworkers, Sheet Metal Workers and Firefighters International Unions of the AFL-CIO, The National Cartoonists Society and Malmark Inc. have joined with No Greater Love in this special celebration of our freedom and the guardians who protect us — our troops, firefighters and police.
Please, Abby, make your millions of readers aware of this effort. As inscribed on the Liberty Bell, “Let us proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” — CARMELLA LASPADA, FOUNDER, NO GREATER LOVE
DEAR CARMELLA: I’m glad to help. I agree that shared traditions are the glue that binds us together as a nation. So readers, on July Fourth, take a moment to quietly reflect on what this holiday is all about. Then make a joyful noise and thank God for his blessings on our country and the freedoms we enjoy today. That’s the American spirit!”

Abby, I totally agree:
One for all and all for one!
Let freedom ring.
I’m in!  How about you?

GMO studies reveal that 18 million Americans suffer from gluten and GMO toxicity –

“Get a glimpse into several GMO studies that you won’t hear about on TV, or read about in the newspapers, that explain how most conventional food gets processed and “fortified” with genetically modified ingredients that cause cancer? Take a look at the countries around the world that are screaming “NO!” to GMO. Countries all over the world ban GMO because of studies like the following:”

This is what happens when Monsanto is not paying for the study, or paying the politician that orders it:  T R U T H. GMO- Genetically Modified Organism.  I do not want to eat salmon or inherent poison as pesticides when I eat a tomato.  If it is GMO you may, though.
