Bells ring throughout city, representing unity

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A sound of unity tolled through the city Friday.

Mount Hope Cemetery tolled its bells at the noon hour. Several Topeka churches joined in as well.

They hoped people sheltering at home would open a window to hear the sounds, sending a message that “we are in this together.”

They also wanted to honor first responders, health care workers, scientists and others.

Several communities around the world have been doing this as well.
