In 1969, John Lennon wrote the song, Give Peace A Chance. The song became the theme for the infamous “Bed In.” The “Bed In” was a protest for the Vietnam War, and for a “Peaceful World.” I remember watching the protests on T.V., and the song was simple, but the message was powerful.
John Lennon did not like the political views of Richard Nixon, and I imagine he would not like Mitt Romney. He would fight against Fracking, and speak up for Global Warming. Those are a few beliefs that fit the songs message then and now.
Today October 9, is John Lennon’s 72nd birthday, and John Lennon would be singing his song Give Peace A Chance and Imagine. He’d be standing by Yoko saying, “We can bring Peace to the World.” I dreamt of another “Bed In” a fight against the crazy world with hidden gems of love, peace, and beauty.
In honor of John Lennon, please join the Peace movement.
