John Lennon: People For Peace

Today on the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's "death" (I write death between quotations because he may have died biologically, yet his spirit and legacy are still alive) I would like to remember him and his message of peace.

Lennon is not only one of the most iconic and legendary musicians of the 20th Century, but also a preacher of peace and unity. Songs like "Imagine", "Give Peace A Chance", and "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" promote a world based on love, peace, unity, tolerance, & respect for others and the environment.

Despite being written and performed almost 40 years ago, the messages within Lennon's songs are still contemporary.

Other songs worth listening today are: "Woman", "Just Like Starting Over", and "Mind Games".
