Bells at places of worship to ring 49 times to remember Pulse victims
On June 12, 2018, bells will toll 49 times in unison around the world as a tribute to the victims lost during the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. Mothers of the victims are calling upon churches, temples, synagogues, mosques and businesses to join them by tolling their bells and showing solidarity with messages of love and kindness on their public signs, according to 49 Bells.
"The tolling of the bells is part of Acts of Love and Kindness, a One Orlando Alliance movement grown out of the spirit of giving and good deeds witnessed in the aftermath of the tragedy at Pulse Nightclub. The movement inspires the Orlando community and beyond to engage in volunteerism, share stories and show support through acts of love and kindness in the 49 days leading up to June 12. Those participating in Acts of Love and Kindness are encouraged to share their stories on social media using the hashtag: #ActLoveGive."
This year’s tolling of the bells will take place at noon on June 12, 2018 around the world.
Faith communities who worship in a building without a bell or businesses with outdoor displays can participate by simply posting the number “49” on their signs.
