I just finished watching "The U.S. vs. John Lennon". WOW, I couldn't agree more with everything that man had to say! More than just a musician, singer and songwriter, he was a very influential political activist. His causes were great, and his actions spoke much louder than his words!
This movie not only delves into his life transition as an anti-war protester, but also about the Nixon Administration. I myself, will not dive fully into politics, but let's just say that this movie describes a lot of my views. But let me say this:: I find it down right funny, actually, how the U.S. Government found one man so incredibly intimidating! And not just him, but his message! So much so, that they choose to send him and his wife out of the country by taking away their green cards! Granted, they WON that case and became legal, permanent, U.S. citizens. But only after 4 1/2 - 5 years of fighting for it, only be gunned down in front of his home a few years later...what a SAD day in American History.
Regardless of your thoughts, feelings, or beliefs, there is no way that you could NOT want Peace (well at least I hope this to be true)! Thirty one years later, John Lennon and his message still resonate throughout the world (talk about an impression!)::
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!
