Thanks to Richard, whose link is at the bottom of this page, for putting this link up on Facebook today.
This song is Happy Christmas, War is Over, by John Lennon. I found out today that other people have not heard this song, even people who listen to the radio a lot, I assume. I have heard it in Wisconsin and in Kentucky at Christmastime.
I wish I would hear it more, and expect to hear it on the radio or TV Christmas week.
I do love this song. It means even more seeing the video today. I, like so many others, really miss John Lennon. When he died, a piece of me did too. He stood for so much, peace, fighting against injustice, not caring what others thought of him, and a lot more.
Here is the video of the song.
I am so glad that the whole world is remembering John Lennon today. Here are a few links that I found interesting:
Rolling Stone will release John Lennon's final print interview found in a closet (link is here).
Lennon's Other Legacy: Newsweek talks about John Lennon and calls him the "first meta-celebrity." (link is here)
**And especially: Squid Rich's blog: John Lennon, 30 Years Gone: Happy Xmas (War is Over) (link is here).
If John Lennon were alive today, what do you think he would be fighting for? Stopping the wars everywhere, and living peacefully, bringing prisoners home, and much more, I think. But on the good side, many people have been inspired by him and are working for these same things today. I say Yay!
