Inspiration, Everlasting

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

John Lennon
10/9/40 - 12/8/80

We're still working on it, John.
I'll never give up.

I always loved that song. I hope to see the day before the end of mine.

I was horrified when I heard the news in 1980. As the years wear on, John's honesty and hopefulness continue to illuminate.
