Don't tarnish church bells

Regarding the article “Bells at church called too loud” (Nov. 29): Maybe the bells are not appropriate 24 hours a day, but it seems to me that people choose where they live and are free to leave if the traffic gets too heavy or the train shakes the building or “the bells are too loud.”

I miss the church chimes in the small town where I grew up, and wonder if they can still be heard on Sunday mornings about 9. Our Lady of Peace in North Augusta has a bell; when I heard it recently it flooded my mind with memories.

Maybe we all need more reminders of how important the church is, especially this time of year.
