9 October 1940@Liverpool

Under a German air raid one 'beatle' was born in Liverpool on 9 October 1940. Later he became a man who has changed not only music scene but younger generation's life style. His song is shown next to Magana Carta at the British Museum. Also on WHO'S WHO we can easily find the name the Beatles between Bach and Beethoven, maybe:-)
He, Lennon had a good humor sense. One night in 1963 the Beatles was performing at the Royal Variety Show. He said to the audience, "Those of you in the cheaper seats can clap your hands. The rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewellery."
For a few years before he was murdered, he retired from public life. He was a full-time father. He found it much more important to live as a husband or a father. It was a new beginning. But in New York one fanatic fan shot John Winston Ono Lennon on 8 December 1980.
67 years have passeed since his birth. The world without Lennon experienced the Gulf War, a new century, 9.11. and so on.
 Imagine there's no heaven
 It's easy if you try
 No hell below us
 Above us only sky
 Imagine all the people
 Living for today ...
 You may say I'm a dreamer
 But I'm not the only one
 I hope someday you'll join us
 And the world will be as one

His dream has not come true yet. His wisdom has not realized because of our prejudice, either.
