Make love not war!

Next week (8 Dec.) it will be 25 years ago that John Lennon was assasinated.

A few years ago I was allowed to sleep in the same room in the Amsterdam Hilton where he and Yoko had their famous bed-in for peace. Amsterdam at that time was the center of the flower power movement. Make love not war!


Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the peopleliving for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Thanks for the reminder. We were in New York with our teenage kids last summer and went by the Dakota (where John Lennon lived and died) - there were flowers out front every day.

His legacy is a cry for peace.

I will never forget that day,, it was very strange day...
also I have always found it odd it is the day that the Buddha recieved Enlightenment under the tree,,, which is being repeated now with a young 15 year old in Nepal doing the same,, supposedly meditating since May 17th this year!!
The Imagine song should be the World's Anthem,,, I have always said it is the official anthemn for my Citizens Of Planet Earth Academy.

......''It's easy if we try..''

and finding other people through this wonderful invention the WWW. I am loving the fact that...."You may say Im a dreamer, but Im not the only one,!!!!"
