Church Bells

Amman Jordan
Dennis Ross Special Shoot

This morning I heard a sound that I had not heard in a very long time , church bells toiling accross the city of Amman. Amazing in an Islamic Country but I stopped and listened. There was no Mullah berating you to come out and prey, or volume cranked up to the point of distraction.

I have not heaard church bells in such a long time that I had forgotten the simple sounds that signify a religion that forms my beliefs. It was not a peal of extremism or fundamentalism. They did not wake me up from sleep at some unholy hour and they will not be played five times a day

the world needs more church bells
