John Lennon’s Music for Peace

Posted on December 30, 2008. Filed under: 1. World Peace | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

John Lennon has made a lasting impact in the world through his strong stand for Peace. This month countless people all over the world remembered the 28th anniversary of his death on December 8th, 1980, when his young life was ended by the violent act of an assasin’s bullet.  

His songs and music such as “Give Peace a Chance” have become anthems for World Peace.

Let’s remember John Lennon by listening to one of the songs that he used to spread his stand for Peace.  This song  is “Give Peace a Chance” where he sang “.. all we are saying, is give peace a chance”.  

These are powerful words that echo and their message reverberates more than 30 years since they were sung.

As we approach the 2009 New Year and make our resolutions for the coming year, let’s think of these powerful words and add it to our resolutions to take a stand to “Give Peace a Chance”

 
Happy New Year to you all! May Peace Blossom in the 2009 New Year!

What does Senator Barack Obama’s election mean for Peace in the World?

Posted on December 22, 2008. Filed under: 0. Peace, 1. World Peace | Tags: , , , , , , |

The election of Senator Barack Obama as the President Elect of the United States of America has generated great excitement, and joy. It has raised hopes around the world. People have rejoiced, danced in the streets and spoken openly of a new day of hope.

This hope and joy expressed in the different corners of this planet that we inhabit, is in and of itself a good thing. It draws people in the different parts, who would typically belong in different camps divided by virtual and real walls that keep them apart. It is good because it brings people closer and even if it is fleeting and temporary, to some extent lowers the walls that keep them divided.

The big question however, is what will be the long term impact on World Peace, of Senator Barack Obama being elected to be the next President of the United States?

Share your thoughts, ideas and comments on this issue, and help generate a discussion on this question that relates to peace.

Peace to the World
Let’s Imagine What Will Open Up to All of Us, to Our Children and Grandchildren When We Have PEACE!!
