A Much Needed Peace

Cloud Art by Joan Ellen Gage
 
Here at the penultimate holiday of the western world and beyond, there is so much hype about peace and love, and traditional values. I feel there is actually very little peace and love given freely on our planet.

I am reminded of the words to John Lennon's song, Imagine. I pray that we do not forget these words, and that someday they will be true. Please read them at the bottom of this post.

Peace on Earth to all!

Joan
 
"Imagine"

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
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
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 someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one 
 
by John Lennon
1971
