We have received word that David Hall, the 'Belladier', has died. The notice, with details of the arrangements for friends and family, is here - http://www.proclaimliberty.us/blog/
For those who do not know of his devoted work in the name of liberty, here is a brief account of his personal mission, taken from his own statements which are listed at the following site.
My name is David Hall, Belladier
My name is David Hall. I am the Belladier, the keeper of the Bell. Do not look up Belladier in the dictionary. It's not there, yet. I created the word to describe what I do as I created the Liberty & Law Memorial to honor those individuals who protect our laws, our treaties and people at home and around the world. We are the "Land of the Free" because of the Brave. The traveling Liberty Bell tolls today as Bells have tolled for over 500 years honoring heroes who have laid down their lives for their countrymen. The Liberty Bell, the sacred icon of 1753, tolled for our Founding Fathers: Benjamin Franklin-1790, George Washington-1799, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson-1826. My wife, Phyllis, and I have traveled through England and Europe; visited many Bell sites and studied their traditions as well as the concluding honors afforded our Heroes in America over the past 250 years.
Since the war on terrorism began in Afghanistan and Iraq I have tolled the "Nations only exact replica traveling Liberty Bell" at over 500 funerals for our active duty, Killed in Action Military Heroes. I realize, as many of you, the Cost of Freedom paid by our sons and daughters for this Nation is high, and that it is our duty to pay tribute for these great sacrifices. We as a Nation can never forget the price they paid for our Liberty. I meet the families of our Fallen, and they too understand this high cost. We as fellow Americans need to hold them in our arms while God comforts their hearts. In fulfilling this duty my life becomes richer and more meaningful because of these families and their American Heroes....
