It has been 33 years to the day (12/8/1980) since John Lennon was assassinated. John was such an influential voice in the 60’s & 70’s and had an big enough impact to garner the F.B.I.’s attention. Wiki explains: In 1971, the FBI put John Lennon under surveillance because of his anti-war activities. The INS tried to deport him a year later.
John also had interesting forms of protest like the 1969 Vietnam war protest dubbed “Bed in” where John and his new wife Yoko Ono stayed in bed for two weeks. Wiki explains: Knowing their March 20, 1969 marriage would be a huge press event, John and Yoko decided to use the publicity to promote world peace. They spent their honeymoon in the presidential suite (Room 902) at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel for a week between March 25 and 31, inviting the world’s press into their hotel room every day between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
I often wonder what the world would be like if John Lennon was still around. His relentless activism for peace and interesting but influential perspective (you know seeing the world 10 times over being a Beatle and all) could of made a huge impact on the way the world is today.
“Imagine all the people Living for today, Imagine all the people
Living life in peace. You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one. ” - Imagine
