  1. “There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ~ John Lennon ~


      • “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” ~ John Lennon ~


  2. I remember when I heard the news. I was in college, working on a big paper in political philosophy. I heard the news and didn’t believe it. It was as if the radio announcer had said aliens had landed or something equally unimaginable. It is still unimaginable. So sad, but good that he live on in his music and will for centuries to come.


    • I was sound asleep when my partner woke me. The words that came out of her mouth were too shocking to hear, believe or understand. She told me that John Lennon had been killed. Someone had shot him to death outside the Dakota where he lived. Who? Why? What reason would anyone want to kill John Lennon, a former Beatle. He was and is going to always be my favorite Beatle. I thought and still think he wrote and sang the deepest and best songs after he left the Beatles. I loved him then and I love him now. You are right he will and is immortalized by his music. Imagine is an anthem for peace and the unity of the world as one. I believe in his philosophy b/c it is my philosophy, also. I keep thinking the same thing, it is unimaginable that someone just walked up to him and assassinated him. He was just walking into the Dakota where he lived. The guy had a thing for the book “The Catcher and the Rye.” Who would want that kind of fame for being the ***bleep*** who killed John Lennon. I will always love him. It is sad. And you are right, hearing the news was just like hearing something as odd as announcing the aliens had landed and were invading the planet. I have my favorite tunes of his on my mp3. Loved Double Fantasy when it came out after his death. I collected all the Beatle albums when they first came out. I screamed in the movie theatre during Hard Days Night and I screamed when the Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan Show. I will never forget John Lennon. Thanks. j.k.
