Song for Friday...old song, same message

When John Lennon was killed in December 1980, a lot of us remembered where we were and what we were doing.
It was like when John F Kennedy was shot, the generation before us knew where they were and what they were doing.
I was pregnant with my daughter and out for a walk to the 7/11 to satisfy a craving for Alpha Ghetti.
When I got to the store, everyone was standing still, listening to the news.
"what's going on? " I said...
"John Lennon's dead."
At the time, it was a shock and I thought it was some kind of weird joke.
As time has gone on, I've realized more and more what an influential person he was, in his music and his plea for peace and love.
Hippie stuff? You betcha!
But all in all he was SPOT ON about it.
This video was shot in a hotel room in Montreal.
Have a peaceful, loving weekend.

As with all the peaceful ones in this world.... they forgot that there was evil waiting around the corners in their lives disquising itself as a friend and making them believe that peace was an achievable goal. I wonder if it ever can be in a global way.
I love the idea of it....
