The Liberty Bell, The Millennium Bell, The World Peace Bell, The 9/11 Memorial Bell: Bells that commemorate significant milestones in the history of mankind or that memorialize tragedies that should always be remembered as a way of honoring the departed. Solemn tolls at National Cemeteries instill pride and reverence for those who sacrificed their lives. In military ceremonies, the Honor Bell is heard as seven clear, solemn peals followed by silence at the end of the memorial service. It is considered the highest form of respect and honor for a fallen hero. These sacred bells connect us in mind and spirit to the individual lives and the events that surrounded them. “The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it” (Henry David Thoreau).
