Happy Birthday John

Search Amazon.com for john lennonToday would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday...It's hard to imagine that he has been gone so long!  The world has such an outpouring of love and admiration for a man who could quite possibly be one of the best songwriters and performers of the twentieth century.  Perhaps George Harrison said it best in the song "all those years ago" when he said "...you point the way to truth when you say all you need is love".  The most vocal member of the Beatles, he always said what was on his mind despite consequences personally or professionally.  It's easy to wax poetic about what the world would be like were it not for Marc David Chapman, but John would not want the world to get stuck on woulda coulda and shoulda...but rather will do and can do!  Let's spend this day and every day after working towards peace....."its easy if you try"
