Birthday Wishes for John - 2001


October 9, 2001 was the 61st anniversary of John Lennon's birth. His birthday is a time to celebrate his life and reflect upon what he meant to the world. If there ever was a time that John's message of peace was needed, it's now. John may be gone, but his spirit lives on.

Happy Birthday John: I wish the world was a more peaceful place on your 61st birthday, but sadly it is not. However, you are no stranger to violence. You were brought in to this world under the thunder of bombs, and ushered out with in a hail of bullets. Despite these horrific events during your life, you were and are still a messanger of peace. What is your message today? I wish I only knew... Love to you, Yoko, Sean and Julian. Jennifer

thank you, john, for all your words that have inspired those of us out there to fight for peace, even if it is not popular opinion. thank you for using your fame and fortune to better this world with messages of peace and love. i miss you more today than ever before, as we face war, because you were a true activist who was not afraid to speak out in a country divided by warmongering and pleas for peace. i hold your words and ideals deep in my heart today and always. happy happy 61st birthday, where ever you are. i hope you have found that beautiful place where love and peace prevail instead of our world of hate and violence. "imagine all the people, living life in peace... 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 live as one"

Happy Birthday to our two Lennon boys! 26 and 61. I'm glad that we still have Sean with us to carry on the Lennon glow. As for John I miss him but am glad that we all still remeber his birthday. In times like now we could have used his light to guide us. So we'll just have to use the light he left in our hearts. :-) Happy Birthday John.

John Lennon - you are probably the most famous of Johns on our planet. That shows how close you are to us all - people call you after your first name - they treat you as their own brother and most dearest friend. Your music enthralls people and makes them feel like you were their friend. You opened your soul to us all -which was the dearest present you could give. Your music will never die. We love you 'cos you were never afraid to be yourself - you were real. Your songs are a source of eternal love and happiness. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN - LOVE AND PEACE TO YOU. P.S. "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make".

If you're listening which I know you are please talk some sense into my one hell of a mad sister. Every minute of her life has to be associated with the 60's, she can't make decisions about her life unless you aren,t part of it. Well then again I don't blame her after all you are a working class hero and that is certainly something to be. peace to the nation! luv Saima.

I love you Lennon!
John Lennon. A man that has changed the world forever. I just finished reading the entire page of birthday wishes to John. As I read it, my eyes filled with tears that I could barely hold back. John Lennon has changed my life forever, as he did for so many others. I was born in the eighties, however I wish I could of lived to see you!! Your music and words have changed my life more than anybody could imagine. The person I am today is a result of music..of the Beatles..of John Lennon. Music inspires everything I do, my personality, my style, the way people look at me. I wish you were hear today and over the past twenty one years. The world has been cheated of twenty one more years of amazing music. I wish you were here with us John! Happy Birthday and may you always look down on us forever! I hope someday I can meet you. Also, Happy Birthday to Sean! I know John is proud of you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN! I LOVE YOU!

In times as such, we must not forget who we are. No matter if we are born poor and make it rich, or we are born rich and lose everything we must remember who we are and where we came from. But all in all, we all lose something--something that undoubtly changes us. But remember...Good blossoms from everything. And from John, are we truly blessed to have such a magnificent individual to open our eyes, ears, and mouths to peace amongst all. With peace, there is no boundary of class, race, and gender. We are all human beings; mortals that feel pain, but most importantly, mortals that feel love. And it is love that we should share. To John: In all modesty and sincerety, I am, as so many others along with me, overly emotional when I say that you are a gift in which God has given to us. And from you, I am thankful. Though my true feelings I cannot even begin to be able to express, but I am truly doing the best that I can, as human as we all are. I shall have you in my thoughts everyday, as you are truly wonderful. I pray that you have found peace and that you will always remain with us in spirit. Please, don't ever go away. Happy Birthday John. Robin

Happy 61st, John. We still love you. I hope one of these days that there will be peace throughout the world. So that there will be no more senseless killings & violence, especially with what's going on. We can still dream, though. "Imagine there's no countries. It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. And no religion, too." Anyway, you are still in my heart & I wish you the best on your day. Happy Birthday, John.

John Lennon. It's your brithday, happy birthday to ya'. I don't know anyone who hasn't heard Imagine. The message lives on regardless of creed or race. The world woud be so imcomprehensibly different without your music. I accidently stumbled into a world of peace and love as I peered beneath the ice. I just wanted a glimpse but I fell in and found something so amazing that if I do ever get pulled out, I'll be permanently changed. Multiply that type of influence times the growing population of the world. There's that many people out there that wish you were here to celebrate with us all. The world's a drag with all the terrorism. I'm sure more peple than I are wondering what you would do, loving New York so much. We'll just stand strong, and though you aren't here to lead us in peace, your music lives on. And you do to me, aye? Happy birthday to Sean too. If's there's a war I've got a herd of friends and myself that'll be prodding you to do your dad's thing and lead us in peace. But leaders can't be born, I guess they say... Happy 61 John. You surely are the walrus. And since the self-praise came from one like you, I'd sure like to be a walrus too. ~Jessi H.

I can't believe what a coincident that is! But I'm glad. I am not glad that someone took your life from not only you, but your family and us all. I take this moment to wish you a happy birthday as I venture on to learn more about all the reasons people love and worship you.

Happy 61st, my dear friend. Saying "thank you" never really seems to be enough; those two words can never truly express how grateful I am that I was fortunate enough to know you, your your music, your voice, your ideas, your unconventional but remarkably insightful outlook on life. Within my heart there sits a special little pocket, and it's inside this pocket that I carry your spirit with me -- every day of my life. In so many aspects of my life, I am a better person because of you -- never more than a man, no different from the rest of us, you proved time and again that as human beings we ARE able to transcend our perceived limitations and realise our potential, both in spite of, and *because* of, our will, our determination and our spirit -- and you did it all without ever losing touch with your real self, without abandoning the qualities that made you so human, so real, and so genuine in favor of pretension and self-importance. You weren't perfect, and I love you all the more for your weaknesses, imperfections and flaws. An enormous void has remained since you left our world, one that can never, and will never, be filled -- but that's okay. They broke the mold when they made ya, John -- and you never let us forget that, or you. Thank you for the smiles, the tears, and everything in between. I love you always. Christine

September 11, 2001 They came Four of them Armed and loaded With precious cargo Our beloveds They flew To their targets Three hitting One falling to the ground Twin towers For some the tower of Babel For others-a place of work and worth Destiny exploded And in one brief moment the world forever changed. Now we ache And now we cry And now we feel Once again, the fire and blood Of loved ones and foes Now sharing the same grave Uncovering all before the covering over The brave now share with the innocent The coward now shares with the loving child The triggers of awakening Lay before us , broken and dusty Yet risen and bold and very much alive and well Our minds and hearts carry them now Each day for the rest of our lives Forever etched in our brains The images of this day of awakening Flowers and candles and flags To remember the fathers, the mothers, the sons and daughters Who gave their lives , that we may live Honoring all life as sacred and holy Cherishing ourselves as never before. They cry for peace, not war, they cry for peace not war, THEY CRY FOR PEACE, NOT WAR Happy Birthday John-You are held in holy high esteem.

Dearest John, I'm so happy to be able to post here my warmest wishes for a very happy B-day in Heaven. Whenever I hear your song "Imagine," it strengthens me to know I'm not the only one who dreams of a loving, peaceful world. Unfortunately, right now there are people who seek to kill innocent brothers and sisters, and we must respond on their level because the language of hatred is the only one they comprehend. It is sad that in this beautiful yet imperfect world, sometimes you gotta fight for peace. This should be an oxymoron, but isn't -- as you, a fellow Libran, would surely understand. I also want to wish your son Sean a happy B-day. He's only 8 days older than me! LOL Anyway, please pray for us, for peace. :)

Another year, eh? I'm a mere 15 compared to what you'd be. It would be impossible for me to put down into words what you mean to me. This will sound ridiculous, but yer the friend I never had-you always said the right thing to me, the right thing in your music. It's gotten me through the hard times this year: when the love of my life broke up with me, I listened to the Beatles, but especially to the lines of Jealous Guy, "I didn't mean to hurt you/I'm sorry that I made you cry/I didn't want to hurt you/I'm just a jealous guy." I wish Ben would have told me that, but I had to settle for second best-you. When my grandmother had a stroke, the Beatles calmed me down, put me back in reality. You never realized how much you meant to so many people...or how many people love you. You gave us something that can never take away-your music and your spirit. I guess all I can say is: Happy Birthday, I love you, and thank you so much. I LOVE YOU, JOHN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HEY JOHHNIE!!!!!! YOU SAY IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY, WELL HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! WISH YOU WERE HERE!!! But kind of happy you don't have to see what the world has become and how we treat eachother. Yes we need to resolve what is going on but not the way we chose to because an eye for an eye just leaves us all blind.

Happy Birthday again John. Every year this has been a tradition. Every year your music helps me get through tough times, easy times, or even helps me get through a school day. Your music has been my companion throughout a good part of my life, and will always continue to be one. Your life has been influential on mine and that influence has done nothing but good. Again, Happy Birthday. You'll always be my special little guy.

Dearest John, Every year I come here to write my birthday greetings to you along with other people whose life you forever changed. I want to thank you so much for your beautiful music, words, art, and your unyielding hope for the human race. Thank you for risking derrision and ridicule by taking a stand for your dreams of peace and love for the world. "A dream we dream together is reality." Your words have been a constant comfort to me, and I am certainly looking to them at this time of uncertainty in the world. We still need you, John. We always will. Happy birthday; I love you always.

Just wanted to say that John Lennon was true genius who was completely genuine to himself and it reflected the way other people viewed him. I know that John Lennon didn't have all the answers but he never tried to be something that he wasn't and that is was lead to his unparralled fame and realness. Although I am only 23, he has had a profound influnce on me and I only wish that his genius were still here with us to help through these tough times that we have faced and will continue to face. Happy birthday and you are with all of us who are willing to listen.

Thank You John for showing us it's okay to believe in a peaceful world when at times it seems like peace is so far reaching. Happy Birthday to what would have been your 61st. Who knows how you would be affecting our lives had you lived, all we know is that your work and love for the human race continues to inspire us for making this a better world. "A day in the life" is the best composition the Beatles created and when I hear the last chord on the piano it makes me think as if we were finally over the last hurdle!

John, you have inspired me in more ways than one, and I just want to thank you for staying true to yourself no matter what other people thought, and of course, for all the fantastic music you made. Happy birthday!! :) Your music and legacy continue to inspire people, and they will live on forever! :) Oh, and happy birthday to Sean, too! :)

John, In these days of madness, so reminescent of the "War Years", your voice is sorely missed. i thougyt perhaps the world would not end in my life time, filled as I was by your music, optimism, and public struggle to see the shadow in yourself. It was a perfect fit for me. So here on your 61 st birthday, I hope your spirit is clear and at peace. Thank you for a life time of music. Love Peace. Harry

Dear John, as I look at all of the loving birthday wishes that so many people have come together to write, I am starting to cry. You have given us all so much-and have meant something special-to each one of us, through your words and the way you value life and love. I know that you are still here with us, your spirit is lifting us, and helping us through these uncertain times. If we keep your messages true to our hearts, I truly believe that there will be peace on earth. I don't know how else I can explain how much you mean to us. God Bless everyone, and just "Imagine all the people" Happy Birthday!! Remember we all shine on! :)

Where I live, there is only 10 min left of the most important day in history... the day John was born and started on his beautiful journey of life, peace and music. My soul aches for last 21 years that were stolen from him, Yoko, Sean, Julian and us. But we must celebrate his life and know that he is still with us, just on another spiritual plane. We must come together for peace and love, no more violence, no more war!! I believe that John would want that no matter what! John, you are with me now as I write this. You truly are an inspiration, musically, spiritually, politically, personally...I love you and always will. Happy Birthday, John and Sean. Give peace a chance!!//o-o\

Happt Birthday John and Yoko: I just want to say that your son Sean did a very moving version of "That Boy" it really was the most poignant song of the show. I'm sure Mr. Lennon would have been proud. it really had meanings on many levels, and brought tears to my eyes. Peace and power to the people!

WE must now sing Johns songs of Peace and Love. WE must do more than Imagine, more than dream, WE must create a world of Peace that the humanhood will all share. WE must end all greed and all hunger. WE must speak the truth. WE must take to the streets and show that the Power of the People is the only thing that will give us that ideal world of true equality and fairness. WE must remember John, and fight for the things that he sang about, and we beleive in. WE must do it now.

Dear Yoko, and Sean, I wanted to give my birthday wish to John and Sean. I have been greatly touched by all that the Beatles did. I miss John terribly and have ever since the tragedy in 1980. At the time, I was only 13, but since, my whole life has been touched by everything that the Beatles did, said and even the people that they knew. I very much enjoyed the program to honor John. I really appreciate you Yoko, for all that you do to keep us all involved in the continuation of our story. As a constant reminder, I have a copy of one of lithographs which John did. I would not probably have it if it weren't for the art show that travelled to Tulsa a few years ago. Sean, I was very touched by the performance that you gave during the tribute to your dad. It was a top-notch deliverance of something that I have always hoped to see. I have tried to follow your career from the first time I saw you perform. Keep up the good work. Anyway, Happy Birthday and may God bless you and your mom always. In admiration, Dale.

I really love John and his music. He was a great person and he deserves that people still remember him and listen to his music!!! Peace&Love, Liv.

My dearest John, On what would have been your 61st birthday. You are the greatest singer/songwriter/artist that ever lived. Nobody will ever take your place in my heart. One has to wonder about the beautiful music you would be making today if you were here. You are missed and still loved by millions. I also have to wonder what you would think of terroists attacking the city that you loved. Imagine all the people living life in peace. Robin P.S. Happy Birthday to you too Sean!

Happy Birthday John. I was never much of a fan until today. I saw a documentary about John and Yoko's Bed-in and it blew my mind. You are awesome people and the words out of your mouths were the words I hear in my heart. I've never had a TV program effect me so much. I feel as if my life has changed. John, you and Yoko are an inspiration and your words will live on in my heart forever.

All we are saying is give peace a chance...you are irreplaceable, and we will always be able to turn to your words for advice, help, and greatness. You are so amazing, your wisdom was so great and influence a whole generation. Rather than mourn your death, I celebrate your life everyday...love is real, real is love...you are amazing.
