America's Freedom Bell Ceremony To Honor 9/11 Victims

The Spirit of Liberty Foundation will honor those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks by commemorating this historic event through the ringing of America’s Freedom Bell at the Veterans Museum in Balboa Park on Wednesday, Sep. 11, 2019.

All San Diegans are invited to ring the Bell, which was cast in bronze and forged with 11 pounds of steel from the World Trade Center.

The names of all 2,977 victims will be read. Bell ringers will receive a personalized commemorative certificate which will include the list of names for which the Bell was rung.

“We are inviting all San Diegans to join us for this sentimental event to ring America’s Freedom Bell in honor of these individuals,” says Spirit of Liberty Foundation founder and creator of the Bell, Richard Rovsek. “The ceremony will symbolically begin at 8:46 am, to coincide with the time in which the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center.”
