Imagine

In 1969, John married Yoko and the idea of peace and loving your fellow wo(man) was forever changed. Knowing their marriage would turn into a huge media circus they decided to use that press in a positive way by proceeding to stay in bed for 7 days inviting press from all over the world to hear John preach the good word of peace.

John was shot in the back and killed in 1980. It’s sad that a man who inspired peace and love was killed in such a brutal way. I’d like to think John would be the first one to forgive the person who killed him as that’s the kind of bloke he was.

Today’s is his anniversary…so take a moment today to imagine there’s no heaven, no hell, no possessions, no countries at war with one another, nothing to kill or die for, no religion to fight about, no greed…

Remember to love your fellow brother and sister. What better time of the year to do so?

    I was in the sixth grade when John was killed. I’ll never forget hearing this on the news and how shocked and saddened I was. I’ll also never forget the moment of silence Yoko asked all of the mourners to participate in throughout the world and how I kneeled in front of my bed and prayed for John.

    John is a part of all of us now…thank you for remembering him.

      aw michelle that was so touching and moving. my sister was in high school when it happened (I don’t remember it, I was a toddler at the time) and she remembers it well. Hate yoko or love her no matter what she has to get props for keeping John’s memory alive and what he stood for. He’s such an inspiration. Truly when I think of peace John comes to my mind every time.

    Wow thank you for honoring his memory with this post. He was such a loving kind man and his music and the person who he was speaks to me very much, I hope that human kind can EVENTUALLY realize we are all brothers and sisters on this earth and we shouldn’t hate each other but live as one. I think too many people hated Yoko, but I loved that she never let it bother her. John and her were truly in love and it was such a beautiful thing to see I bet. If only our generation could have such a talented kind person in the music scene, instead of all this hate and disrespect we have in our society anymore.

      hey carly he really was an incredible man :) very inspiring! So many people hated on Yoko it was surreal but she truly ignored it all and just went on with her life. She loved John and that’s one thing all fans can agree on. :) AGREED…people are incredibly hateful and nasty :( It’s sad!
