100th Anniversary of World War One
YourACE” is aimed at supporting local communities nationwide with the resources needed to properly commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the World War 1 Armistice. This includes supporting World War One Centennial Commission’s “Bells of Peace: A World War I Remembrance” national event, where citizens and organizations across the nation are invited to toll bells in their communities 21 times at 11:00 a.m. (EST) local time on Nov. 11, 2018.
Bell tollers throughout the country are encouraged to download the free Apple or Android “Bells of Peace Participation App”, which has a built-in countdown timer, bell sounds and provides Veterans Day gatherings the opportunity of joining the nationwide remembrance. If someone is in a place where there are no bells, they have the ability to join in a simultaneous toll from all the phones running the app. These 21st century Bells of Peace will toll from every device, 21 times, in a remembrance of when the fighting ceased.
