PEACE–JUST IMAGINE!

For this turbulent Friday, thought I would finish with a few words on Peace.

It is less than a week since November 11 observances for Remembrance Day and  Veterans Day but the news is filled with stories of major violence in the Middle East.

Labour strife seems to be everywhere with people worried about their livelihoods and futures.

Misunderstandings and conflicts are experienced every day, it seems.

Today, in response to misunderstandings within a group, I was asked by a well-intentioned individual to write a poem about “keeping the peace :)”. This request gave me pause. It started me to thinking.

As I thought about all the things happening near and far, I would like to share John Lennon’s song that has always meant “peace” to me. Each day as I see the wooden carving on the mantle of the fireplace, I am reminded to Imagine. Please click on the song title for a link to the song video.

Have a peaceful weekend, All!:)

Remember the music

Today, many of us will remember that December when John Lennon was shot.

The event was almost unfathomable to a world that so enjoyed his music

and his quest for peace.

In memory of John Lennon,

I wrote a small poem & posted a couple of photos on my blog

Have a happy peaceful day.
