Birthday Wishes for John - 2002


October 9, 2002 would have been John Lennon's 62nd birthday. Sixty-two! Can you believe it? What would a 62-year-old John Lennon have been like? What more would he have contributed to this world? Today, let's forget about all the problems in the world. Let's put aside all our troubles and our worries and our fears. They will still be there tomorrow. Instead, let's focus our energies on something positive. Let's remember the incredible gifts and the indelible memories John Lennon left us. Today, let's celebrate John Lennon and his amazing life.

Wow, i've never been first at anything. Now I get to be first to wish John a happy birthday! Happy Birthday Johnny. Just think, in two years we will all be able to sing "When I'm 64!". Sorry, but I just couldn't think of anything else witty to say. It's not the same without you. Although, if you were still here, it wouldn't be the same as it is now either. At least the music would have been better in the 80's!

It just doesn't get any easier to accept that you are not here,but I still smile when I see you doing that *silly* walk in your white wedding suit & that God awful Jesus beard! You left us *moments*,smiles & memories to keep us with you. What can we say anymore.....We just miss the buggar! Bless You..wherever you are! Mischelle XXXXXXXXX

As each year goes by, it is harder and harder to write about John Lennon on this message board. It is not that I have lost touch with John and his music. But there are only so many times that you can tell people how great he was and is - as a man, as a musician, as a human and as a peacenik. I am comforted in the feeling that John Lennon is not dead. Indeed not! He is still very much alive. Why, I'm listening to the Imagine album as I write. This album is never going away. How can it? Thus, even for the hundreds of people who will post today who were born after 1980 - and maybe even those who were born before 1940! - they know how much John Lennon means to them. He means a great deal to me because his music has had an impact on my life since I first put a needle down on the Imagine album in 1987, when I was 11 and didn't know who John Lennon was or is. As technology advances, we will have new ways to listen to John's albums. But no matter how much humanity progresses, we will never have a leader like John Lennon. I send my birthday wishes to John today. I hope that wherever he is - in heaven, in our hearts, as a twinkle in the sky - he has a beautiful birthday. Peace. --Chris

Looking at video of the Fab Four, hearing their music, or seeing the art of John Lennon brings his brilliance back to me. It then seems hard to imagine our world without him. But his mark has been left on us and our world, and I'll be celebrating his 62nd year with his music.

Can't say what a 62 year old John would have been like but Paul is doing well for an "old man." When Paul did his songs for John and George the crowd swooned where it goes:"I love you." Why? Because we love John the same way and we miss him. I think we all wish we could have told him we loved him too, not just Paul. You never know when someone is going to leave us. But, I still wonder, why at 40? Why the way he died? I think John would have still been rocking. In ways we might not think. Well John, your brother Paul is carrying on for you. I hope you and George are having a time playing together again. You both left us way too soon. We on planet earth miss you both terribly.

Dear John, wherever you are-- I am 52 now, and like everyone else my age, I grew up listening to your music, from when I was 13 and "I want to hold your hand" first came blasting out of the radio, through my college years of Sargent Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, the White Album, and Abbey Road (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years respectively). When you were cruelly shot by some disturbed young punk in 1980, I wept along with everybody else, and after 22 years, I still miss you. But fortunately, we still have your songs, the images, your acerbic wit, your insights-- "Living is easy with eyes closed...misunderstanding all you see...It's getting hard to be Someone, but it all works out...It doesn't matter much to me..." Blessings forever, Tom

John Lennon made my life a whole lot better through his work with The Beatles and solo work. He stood for peace and understanding amongst the sexes and the races. Today we are living in a different world than when he was talking about peace. I think,though, that his ideas are valid and workable but only if the whole world listens and plays along. Iam all for it and when ever the discussion comes around to how to achieve world peace I use John's plan. I MISS YOU JOHN!!!!

You were one of a kind and a genius of art and music. I wonder what you would think of what's going on in this crazy world of terrorism. As you said in your song Instant Karma. "Why in the world are we here, surely not to live in pain and fear." I wish you here to write another great song but the songs you left are all we have and I'm thankful for that. Happy Birthday John!

The world needs John Lennon so badly right now, as the United States speaks of "unilateral preemptive attacks", if only John was here. Try to keep his spirit alive and think how he would react to the news reports on CNN, what kind of music would he be writing. What kind of action against this war would he be taking? Remember the history of the FBI when they ask for more power... it's not just terrorists who the FBI terrorizes, it's also people like John Lennon. PEACE!

Happy Birthday, John! I just saw Paul perform last week in Boston. It would have been nice if John had had a chance to show his stuff on a stage at 62--but he probably would have been busy with other things: "No longer riding on the merry-go-round..."

Happy birthday John (Happy birthday Sean) Pete & Geoff on Virgin Breakfast played Imagine this morning, just after people would have woken up to hear the news, to wish John a happy birthday,& suggested if he was still around he'd being doing something in aid of a September 11 or Anti War On Iraq benefit - even getting back with the Beatles (If George was here too) - If only. Let's mark John's birthday (and every day we can) by doing something to Give Peace a chance.

Thank you for being my inspiration and guide and role model in life. Happy Birthday Uncle John Lennon! :)

Hey O'Boogie...a Happy 62 to You! What a present you got too. The announcement today that your killer did not make parole! That's a great thing to celebrate. I bet Yoko is ecstatic. What a wonderful way for them to celebrate Sean's birthday as well! What can I say that I haven't said over and over again...your spirit is with me always, it's your physical presence that is so missed. We have the things you left behind, your music, writing, and art. We even have your beliefs on the World Peace Movement. One can only imagine what you would be doing now. Peace Marches? Singing? Lecturing? Producing? Who knows. Wish you were here for us to see what you would be doing. Thanks for the memories you left us. We are all richer for it in the long run. BLESS YOU

Dear John, Thank you for your music, For your cheeky humor, For helping me realize that the scraps of paper I've always stuffed in my pockets full of random phrases and scribblings do not make me a freak, For your wit, For your openness, For helping me through hard times with your words, For your toothy grin, For Give Peace a Chance, For Imagine, For God. Thank you for your life.

If John was around now, he'd be a kick-ass old guy. I could just imagine him. He'd probably bitch a lot, but be rather laid-back and cool. I'm sure he would be involved in a lot of things, most definitely all the political stuff as well. He is so, so missed. That bastard who killed him can keep his fat ass in jail for as long as he breathes. Psycho! I miss ya John! Your music is so beautiful, powerful, and deep. And you were a pretty damn fantastic man yourself. Sometimes there are people who race through life and accomplish the unimaginable. They are like shooting stars and their flame burns so bright as they shoot through the sky. When the light can't be seen, it doesn't mean its not there. It still is, but its so bright you can't even see it. I like to think that was you. Thanks John. T'was a grand thing you did for us.

I am gald Lennon was born 62 years ago today, as much as I am glad I was born. Of course the other Beatles were also important to the awareness of Lennon. John Lennon, being the leader of The Beatles, then the leader for world peace through his music and words, deserves a great birthday wish: That wherever or whatever he is now, he should somehow realize all the good that has come out of his efforts. Despite, and because of the actions of some, many more people still gravitate to Lennon's words of peace, and to his great music for inspiration. I play music mainly because of his efforts, and try to think in terms of peace for every situation. Happy Birthday Mr. Lennon! May your energy live on forever! daub

This is your day to be alive again man. I may not have even been born at the time when you died, but as I sit here and listen to your music, alone and with the beatles, I feel like I know you better than really is possible for me, though I'm sure many of us, the new generation of hippies or free spirits (whatever they'd like to call us) feel as we make your music new again. It's freshness and purity rings true no matter what generation you were born in. This is the true music of the ages and it's still groovy after all of these years. Live your after life in peace and happyness knowing that you're loved and you will always live on in our minds. Somewhere down this long and winding road, we'll all get the chance to see you again man, until that day, we'll just groovify the world through your lyrics, your presance and your eternal love. Get back luv. Mikela Collins, 16

Sixty-two years old..if John were still here, he would have made one hell of a 62 year old! He'd put all of the other 62 year olds to shame! :) I've been wearing my John shirt all day, happy that today I get to celebrate my indirect mentor's birthday. John started out by giving me my first taste of true music when I was 13 through The Beatles; he gave me even more by talking about Bagism and peace and showing how one person can do a lot in the world! This is to John: I hope you're rockin out on your special day!!! :)

Dear dear John, what can I say? I am so in touch with your spirit and celebration of your life today, I feel like i just want to scream "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" out the window and expect you to hear it. I may just do that later, so perk up your ears haha. Whenever I immerse myself in your music, i feel you flow through me and affect me in such a positive way, I swear my little sessions with you are like some form of religion. And for that, I love you, and always will. I'm blasting Double Fantasy right now, missing you, and smiling. :) Love and Peace, Lucky Penny (Lauren) P.S. I'm 16...yup, I wasn't even alive in 1980.

John was an amazing person, as a man, as a husband, as a father, and as a musician. He had one of the greatest influences on my life and, I am sure, many others. Thank you so much, John, for the love and honesty that you brought to this world. We will never forget you!!

John Lennon May have died in 1980 but his music lives on, he and Paul Mcartney are my favorite Musicians of all time, and he still exixts today but not in this world. Happy Birthday John wherever you are, we miss you.

Happy Birthday John!!!!!!!!! The world wound be so much better if John Lennon could be here. Of course, he is here, spiritually, but if he could only be here physically.... The best we can do is remember him and show future generations how great he was (and still is for that matter), and make what he "Imagined" come true. Peace, Love, and Happy 62nd!

You've heard the question 'If you could travel back in time, what time would you most want to go to?' Well, I was around when the Beatles were on top, but a little young to fully appreciate what was 'happening'...I'm just glad to have lived in the time that John Lennon lived. Life is complete.

Happy 62nd John. Following your death in 1980, people said that you would never be forgotten. They were right. Today in 2002, your charisma is still very much alive. Your desire for a peaceful world without fear, violence, and hatred has spread among people incredibly. It seems that you've turned a lot of people into "dreamers". Although someone was able to take your life, your legacy will always remain untouchable. You single-handedly changed the world. No one could ever take that feat away from you. Well most celebrities choose to be isolated and simply enjoy their own luxurious world, you decided to make a difference OUR world. Although I was not even alive during your time, words cannot describe my appreciation for your efforts and for your courage. I hope you enjoyed your day today (no parole for MDC! :P) and are happy wherever you happen to be right now. Thank you, Mr. Lennon. R.I.P.

If only there were no countries and religion too, as you have made us imagine...thanks John, we'll celebrate your life here in manila, like we always do...you'll always shine on.

I love you John. Your voice and music mean everything to me, and I think you were a great man. You were someone who tried his utmost to instill the truth in what you said and sang, and tried the best you could to better yourself as time went by. Its so terrible that things ended up the way they did for you, but I am still so thankful we had you. Without you, no Beatles. And that's just the least of it. You were a great, great man and my wishes go out to your family, who are obviously thinking about you along with the rest of us. Only for them, the hurt is even more great. Love you John!!!!

Hey, I know I already posted here...but, I just have to say that John Lennon will ALWAYS live on...Everyone's comments have been simply amazing and filled with meaning and feelings. I jsut have to say that there will NEVER be anyone like John...in any waty. And that most people now a days don't give him the credit he deserves. John will NEVER be forgotten, neither will the honesty in his lyrics. I only wish every secod that I could have lived to have been there during his time. It would be too much to ask to have met him...but to have been there when he was making the world go round, would have been the best of God's blessing. GIVE PEACE A CHANCE...What would John be doing right now? Imagine...simply imagine.

John, You are such an ispiration to me. Today, I wept put of sarrow and out of happiness, for you, because I miss you, yet i cherish you. I cried for all you lived for. You are so brilliant, and I love you for it. I hope that your ideas will live on forever, you are so wonderful. I coudn't have asked for anything more. I hope that one day people will realize that you were right, and everything you lived for was the only way we could prosper. Just imagine. And I am beginning to understand, and I hope to teach people, that maybe just maybe, because you couldn't live in this hate filled world anymore, maybe that is why you left us. I miss you so very much sweetheart. love and peace forever I miss you, John happy birthday Sean!

Dearest John, I'm crying as I type this because I know there will never be anyone as brilliant as you in my lifetime, perhaps never. Even though you left this world 8 years before I was born, you speak to me in ways that nobody else can. We are your peace flowers, and we'll continue to strive for what you worked so hard for John. In my mind, we've had the second coming of Christ. He went under the name of John Winston Lennon. Peace to you and George, rock on! Love you forever, ~Angi~

For what you did in the time you graced the world with your talent I am forever in your debt. It was you who inspired me toward music, and you could move us to tears with your melodies, and fuel our passions with your rock. Whatever else you may have been, your intentions were always good, and for that you are still remembered. Happy Birthday, we will always remember you.

After just coming home from Strawberry fields, I have a sense of mellowness. It was a quiet ,serene feeling there today. Johns presense was felt in a mellow way. There was a serious tone in the air as people gathered to reflect and sing, and pay homage to honor Johns and Seans birthday.A huge banquet was being held in the courtyard of the Dakota supposeily in honor of Seans birthday. The mood was cheerful, but solemn in the air as we sang and wished John and Sean bithday greetings. Johns spirit is here with us. He is listening to us. John loved humanity and every time we think of him,he gives us signs that he is around. What we give to him in love, he gives back threefold."The people don't know, there's no peace from a war". John loved America. He fought and won to become a citizen here.And John believed in peace and love. We need a John Lennon now more than ever to wake up the people,to know there is no peace from a war. Happy Birthday John and Sean Blessed be

I know I wasn't alive when John was, but I know that he was a great person. My mother grew up on the Beatles and she made me listen to their music when I was younger and I just love them now. I love John because he was just a down-to-earth man. He sang great, beautiful songs that you can just relax to. Maybe if he was still alive singing his wonderful songs, maybe the world wouldn't be so screwed up like it is today. I wish he was still alive so I could meet him. But someday, a long time from now, I will die and go to Heaven and I will meet him. I'm not crazy...

I felt like I was in a whole different and for once happy world. I ended up being 5 minutes late, but it was worth it for you John my dear. I hope to see you soon, your in my heart.

Oh, God, John. I've been sitting here reading comments from people who live all around the planet, and I feel as if we're all united, just as you dreamed...that the world is living as one. However, I know that's not the way most people feel at all, especially not in my country. I can't fathom how people can think that war, hatred, and more terrorism is going to combat terrorism. Jesus, we could really use you right now, John. More people may start questioning if a world without war would be so awful. I can't stop thinking about how you questioned it so outspokenly, with no fear of the government or being called unpatriotic (which, as we all know, is the worst thing in the world). You had a lot more to worry about than many people who do not speak out about something that it is their responsibility to speak out on...yet you did it. No, you weren't the only one, John. Perhaps one day, the world will live as one. Happy birthday, John. May your spirit live on forever. Love, Willow

Ive spent days thinking of what to write, so here goes the final, and perfected copy, just for you, John: These are hard times, John, but with your sweet voice in my ears, and your teachings in my heart, I know I will percivere in my goal to bring world peace. We are all one in the same, John, and I wish you were here to guide us all. I wish you were here to guide me. I know youre never comming back, John, and it hurts, but I know we will survive. I know that if we all keep you in our ears, eyes, and hearts, then youre dreams can be acheived. I miss you John, and so do the rest of us. There is so much beauty here, John, and Im sad youre not here to witness the good that is left in this world. Thank You John.
