Number 9 ~ Happy Birthday, John Lennon!

October 9th, would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday.  Today we remember the man, husband, father, musician and peace activist that was John Winston Ono Lennon. 

I can recall when Double Fantasy was released in 1980, Lennon stated the album cover would feature Yoko & him kissing.  At the time, they intended that any pictures of them in the media would only show them kissing.  A protest of sorts against war and I suspect negative vibrations in general.  After all, what image could be more disarming than two people who are in love, kissing?

I came across a quote today by none other than Dr, Seuss, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."  I think, Mr. Lennon would have liked that...

"Think peace. Act Peace. Spread peace and Imagine peace."
