John Lennon: 70?

Just a brief explanation for each of the three videos that follow. First, Yoko Ono and her request for fans on this, what would have been Jon Lennon's 70th birthday.

This clip is the song that changed the music world (maybe all the world) for ever. All those who did not watch Ed Sullivan please raise your hands!

And for today, our time and here and now. This is for those in ACNA, AiMA, CAPA, CANA, the Anglican dioceses of San Joaquin, Forth Worth, Pittsburgh and for those of you in South Carolina think about this before you move on.

There are few "famous people" that when gone, I would say too bad, could have made a difference. John Lennon is one of those who could have and would have made a difference and we (collectively) as the worse off for his death. (Here endth the rant)

I was two then (at the time of the Ed Sullivan Show in '64) so I don't remember it.

But remember John's death only too well (freshman year in college. The radio dj broke into say "John Lennon's been shot." A few minutes later: "John Lennon's been shot, and killed." I heard an entire dorm floor fall absolutely silent).
