Ring bells to celebrate Independence Day

Ben Franklin, John Adams and other Founding Fathers of our republic declared that the celebration of our independence be observed by the ringing of bells at 2 p.m. on Independence Day. Somehow that custom was lost through the years. Maybe we should all start ringing “freedom bells” at 2 p.m. July 4. Since firecrackers are banned in the cities, wouldn't ringing bells be a patriotic celebration of America?
