ABOUT LET FREEDOM
Let Freedom Ring
has for going on two decades promoted the cause of Freedom and
"championed" the plight of America 's Prisoners of War (POWs) and those
Missing in Action (MIAs).
In 1992, Let
Freedom Ring planned and promoted a charity benefit music
concert to highlight the POW/MIA issue and to draw the world's
attention to the fact that thousands of American servicemen have never
returned from wars (WW II, the Korean War, Vietnam and Desert Storm).
Celebrities gathered together in
Philadelphia with World Champion boxers, including World Heavyweight
Champion Muhammad Ali, former boxing champion Jake LaMotta ("The Raging
Bull"), Alexis Arguello, Ernie Shavers, Tim Witherspoon and many more
boxing greats to champion the cause of Freedom.
Renowned singer/songwriter, the late John Whitehead, famous for his
inspirational message song, "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" was joined by Rita, Israel 's Queen of Song , and a host of
other celebrated artists, to perform for the POW/MIA families at
prestigious Philadelphia 's Academy of Music concert hall. Let
Beizer, Esq . personally contributed
$400,000 to bring all
the celebrities together in the City of Brotherly Love and to host the
charity dinner and concert. Donations of $20,000 from Let Freedom Ring benefited several POW/MIA
organizations, including but not limited to the National Forget Me Not
Association, the American Defense Institute, and No Greater Love.
In 1994, Let
Freedom Ring sponsored a mission taking World Champion Muhammad Ali to Vietnam where POW/MIA family
members joined with
Let Freedom Ring's
President, to find answers from Vietnam government officials about
American POWs last known alive. A Bridge of Friendship was established
between POW families and Vietnam representatives who promised to do
more to resolve the issue of America's missing servicemen from the war.
Let Freedom Ring
purchased and released for publication exclusive photographs and
negatives of downed and captured American flyers obtained from
Vietnamese sources in country clearly showing that the Vietnamese
military had a wealth of information documenting the whereabouts of
servicemen known to have been captured alive but who never returned
after Operation Homecoming in April, 1973.
In addition, Let
Freedom Ring sponsored many media events held to generate much
needed media coverage for the POW/MIA issue. One such event stands out
head and shoulders above the rest. This took place when Attorney Arnold
Beizer, Let Freedom Ring's determined
President, rented a huge elephant named Daisy, renaming her "MIA" for a
press conference held in front of Philadelphia 's Independence Hall at
the Liberty Bell Pavilion. At first the National Park Service police
refused to permit the elephant to be downloaded at the curb in front of
the Liberty Bell. But Attorney Beizer
quickly came to the elephant's defense and pointed out to police there
was no law prohibiting elephants from parking at the curb! "MIA" was
unloaded onto the street and then promptly left a load of her own as
she proudly paraded about the mall with a large yellow ribbon tied
around her neck and a banner draped over her back proclaiming, "Elephants Never Forget..... Don't You Forget Our
Television trucks beamed the big story of
the elephant's walk around the Liberty Bell on Philadelphia 's TV news
stations throughout the day, which pricked up the ears of the public
and created quite a flap.
Informing and educating Congress, the
President and the public on the unsolved POW/MIA issue is another of Let Freedom Ring's prime focus areas. But the
principal mission of Let Freedom Ring is
to produce and provide MUSIC FROM THE HEART
OF AMERICA bringing a message of freedom to the masses.
Music is the Universal language that all can understand. As the saying
goes, "People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while
the music lasts." - SO LET THE MUSIC PLAY!
Our Founding Fathers inscribed the words
of Moses on the Liberty Bell,
(America 's symbol of freedom in
Philadelphia ): "Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land unto all the
inhabitants thereof" (Leviticus 25:10). In the Let
music video, these immortal words scroll
across the bottom of the viewing screen with this proclamation
professed to all. "Let Freedom Ring" fills
screen with dramatic 35mm motion picture film of America 's symbols of
freedom, its resilient people and their mighty machines commissioned to
defend the cause of freedom.
