Dear John, happy birthday and I wish you well wherever or whoever you may be right now. Thanks for all you've done, for your music, which changed the lives of so many people, and for bringing peace back into our minds. May your spirit live on forever in us.

Dear John, I just wanted to tell you how much your music has inspired the world. It has touched and helped millions to strive for peace and unity on earth. I just hope more people will fight for peace, and imagine a world with no war, and just love. I really wonder what it would be like if you were still here today. I want to give you all my love and wishes in heaven, because I imagine there is a heaven, where John Lennon and his music still lives on in our memories. (a bit soppy that.. anyways just felt like being soppy)

24 years, every October 9th, we all can't help but show our love and gratitude for you, John. We know you don't care about us, your fans, being so rooted to you. We should root ourselves to peace and love and bring this world to what you described in "Imagine". You've led an extraordinary group of this world, John, we'll never forget you, not even in the next 24 years to come... Happy 64th!

May God protect John Lennon. Again the crude age needs to insure peace with his tongue and cheek. A pitch of love to walk free and verify the priceless right of the spirit of love. A mission nobody seems able to do even for the sake of a tangled world. The impossible wars remaining ill to people, as his memory sticks the violence as is the duty of diehard politicians to make peace. A vegetating media peaks with a loss that his common sense and talent towered over. veering to an earnest prejudice of a healthy valor which they DO NOT follow! I am scarred with his mortal ruin reflecting with my penmanship his sustenance for and with the certainty of right and wrong. Inclusive to us all this ensemble of military power for the enrichment of the future. I would deeply desire to wish John Winston Lennon a happy birthday for his family.

Dear John Once again I attended your birthday celebration at Strawberry Fields in NYC. I have never yet missed going and taking a day off from work. Hopefully, someday we can turn your bday into an international day for Peace. It was a warm, beautiful day and you certainly were felt there. Your friends, David Peel, Tom Doyle, and Frank Lanzi, from the original Plastic Ono band played out thier hearts to you. Over 30 years ago, you guys all gigged together. We all had a great time celebrating your birthday. Im sure Sean had a blast celebrating his 29th. All my love, as I know your always nearby and will never leave us. LENNON LIVES!

Life and its many complications and challenges have distanced me too far from both this lovely site, and more importantly, from the man, the music, the reason we are all here. I have had so little time over the past two years to not only celebrate John's remarkable life and work, but to find that place that I always seemed to find within my daily reality to fit him in, so that he would always be there, his voice, his words, his music influencing me in the most subtle but nonethless unmistakable of ways. Yesterday, I decided that too much time had passed. I missed John -- not only as a physical presence in this world, but as a presence, inspirational or otherwise, in my everyday reality. I came here today because I knew that this would be the best place to share how I have been feeling these past couple of days. People here always understand. I have missed him, but I will never allow his spirit and his influence and inspiration to wander too far away again. Happy Birthday, John. You will always hold a special place in my heart and in my life. Love, Christine

John Lennon was a great artist and his influence on music will never be forgot! It was a terrible day for us all when he lost his life. His songs taught us about peace and ourselves, so it seems so ironic for him to lose his life in the way that he did. He is missed so much by all his fans. Whereever you are John I know that someday we will meet and maybe then I'll understand why you are gone!!!

Johnny, I love and miss you with each passing day. Since you've been gone nothing is quite the same. This was the 64th and maybe not so bad, eh? I'm looking forward to next year to your 65th and being in New York to celebrate it right. All My Love

I would like to wish John Lennon a wonderful happy birthday! You are one of my heroes and I can only wish that you are in a better place now. I hope you are not diasppointed with our world now, John; the war has to end sometime right? Thanks for the memories and music John. God Bless you and your family. Peace and love, michelle

John have the happiest birthday wherever you might be... I feel bad for nearly forgeting about it this year, last year I celebrated it so much and this year I forget until about 9 PM... it's pathetic on my part. I was sitting at a marching band festival thrilled to death because two marching bands played Beatles tunes... it was so cool... and then I was like "Holy BOB! it's John's Birthday today..."

John- You really had a gift which was a blessing for the world. It came through in your music, lyrics, love for humanity, honesty and your humor!!! I'm married now with 6 lovely children -- but you are like the former lover that I can never forget. Problem is I have to share you with everyone else. But that's cool. You shared with everyone and brought new light and consciousness into the world in a humble way. Why did it have to end? We can only speculate that it's amazing for you on the other side now -- and you deserve to be in the most amazing dimension. Happy birthday and wishing you joy! Wishing the world healing! love, michelle ma belle

ESPECIALLY THE WAY THE WORLD ISTODAY I AM SURE IF JOHN WAS HERE HE WOULD TRY AND FIND A WAY TO HAVE PEACE ON THIS WORLD FOR EVERYONE. DEC 8/1980 WAS A TRAGIC DAY FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY I REMEMBER WATCHING TV AND SEEING IT I WAS FULL OF EMOTION FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM COULD NOT BELIEVE IT AS I AM SURE EVERYONE ELSE FELT THE SAME. AND ON THE 10TH OF DEC/1980 GAVE BIRTH TO MY OLDEST DAUGHGTER SO ON THIS TRAGIC DAY I PRAY FOR PEACE FOR YOKO JULIAN AND SEAN AND TO REMEMBER THE GOOD MEMORIES OF HIM AS A HUSBAND AND FATHER AS I AM SURE THERE ARE MANY JOHN WAS ALWAYS MY FAVORITE I LOVE HIS VOICE AND HIS MUSIC HAS HELPED ME THROUGH LOTS OF HARD TIMES WELL HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN JOHN LOVE YOU

Happy birthday buddy. I've been a fan since I was a little kid and now as I approach middle age I still am inspired by your music. You've been there through good times and bad times for 30 years now providing the soundtrack to my life. I guess we were destined to go through life together and for that I'll always be thankful. Take care man.

Happy Birthday. I'm sure there are many others who would wish it too, along with your old Beatles friends and Stu and good ol' Phil Spector. What would you say today? I'm not sure myself, but I still believe in you... power to the dreamers and romantics. If only everyone could find the love in their hearts to make 'Imagine' a reality. But I think nevertheless, you have changed the world, and I sincerely wish you and your son a happy birthday. Thanks.

Wow, 64 years! I can't even imagine what's to be 20. When you leaved this world I was not even born, but your music and your life still inspire me to go on. 64 years ago today, your mother Julia gave birthday to one of the most prolific and impresive musicians(in all the extension of the word) that ever have lived in this planet. I cannot imagine what would have been of the world without you Johnny; what have we done without the Beatles, without Imagine, without In My Life, without Revolution, without the bed-in, without the pacifist, without John Lennon the human being??? My mind can't conceive a world without you. How I would love to still see you between us rockin', fighting for peace, just being you. Sorrily that's not possible, but you still live in the hearts and minds of each and everyone of us. You leaved a mark in this world that will last forever. Thank you John, and Happy 64th Birthday!!!

Okay so this what it says at the top of the webpage: Oct 9, 2004 is John Lennon's birthday, but it's you that gets to make a wish. Well, I'm making a wish. I wish the Red Sox will win the World Series in 2004. There. I got to this website before any Yankee fan had a chance to make a wish so now we should win. I believe in the power of wishing and will not let the smug Yankee fans play mind games with us this time around. We will play mind games with them instead. Pedr0 should pitch Sheffield high and inside. We'll still give peace a chance though but it will be peace of mind for Red Sox fans all over the world.

i was 12 when john died - i was fascinated with all things lennon for over a year already and he became a sort of father figure to me since mine had died a month before i was born i was at the vigil in central park with my mom's best friend, x-husband (former flower child and hippy respectively and respectfully) and thier daughter - we were like family this was monumental but when the crowd was finally all together there was the most people in one place i'd every seen and i suspect ever will again (maybe a child's imagination has a way of exaggerating but i'll never forget how cold it was and a grey day and people crowded and huddlied and not a spot to navigate and people sitting in the trees!) the grief was enormous - the sadness was heavy in the chest and the gut but i remember seeing this one guy weeping and suddenly i thought if one man could do this to us then what he was saying was true - so to this day i take most of his words to heart and have incorporated them into my own philosophies thank you john - the world's a better place for having known you

John, I have 12 years to go to make it to 64. I never thought that I would make it to 30. I sure as hell do not trust anyone over that age. Certainly not me. You never got there either, if getting there is about being on Earth. You travel with me daily. The Revolution that scared the ruling class still simmmers. The mirth that thrives in your essence is there for all of us every day. Thank you, Yoko, for making the committment and doing it. Bless you all for being part of all our lives. The music is there to guide us all, as is the spirit and the love. Take a moment, seize the day, outrage your neighbors, and give Peace A Chance. Pacem In Terris, Shalom, Se Wah.

Thanks for allowing me, and so many others, to project onto you what we need. Thanks for your courage. I know you're still here with Yoko (and the rest of us...) but we miss your flesh and bone. - Right now we need someone to help us get some peace. See you next time... lane

THE WAR IS OVER.... if you believe it! ALL WE ARE SAYING....IS GIVE PEACE A CHANCE! IMAGINE******* all the people living life in PEACE. You were a dreamer, a poet, a father, a lover, a music man, a philosopher, an activist, an "old soldier" fighting for PEACE....... How could they think they could ever kill you? YOU WILL LIVE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS! THANK YOU, dearest John! For giving us the TRUTH as well as the POSSIBILITIES. We CAN be FREE and live in PEACE..... if we really want it! Your simple message cost you your life. Can we be brave like you? To honor you on your BIRTHDAY, I will play your music. I will laugh and sing. I will speak the truth. I will forgive. So that PEACE can begin with me.

I was playing a lot of the Lennon Anthology-box since a long time. An autumn-sun was shining one of the last chances to feel the strengh of the summer fading away. Then I realize it was Lennon's birthday today. Another cosmic day.

We are growing collectively, as a physical being a thinking being and a feeling being. We are in the expansive phase of our universe. There is an attitude and an understanding coming that is greater than us all..........and you know that for sure.

When I get older losing my hair, Many years from now. Will you still be sending me a Valentine. Birthday greetings bottle of wine. If I'd been out till quarter to three. Would you lock the door. Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When i'm sixty-four. You'll be older too, And if I say the word, I could stay with you. I could be handy, mending a fuse When your lights ha ve gone. You can knit a sweater by the fireside Sunday morning go for a ride, Doing the garden, digging the weeds, Who could ask for more. Will you still need me, will you still feed me When I'm sixty-four. Every summer we can rent a cottage, In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear We shall scrimp and save Grandchildren on your knee Vera Chuck&Dave Send me a postcard, drop me a line, Stating point of view Indicate precisely what you mean to say Your's sincerely wasting away Give me your answer, fill in a form Mine for evermore Will you still need me, will you still feed me When I'm sixty-four WE WILL ALLWAYS LOVE YOU JOHN!!

"Nothing's going to change my world" How right John Lennon was. It is 2004 and fear, greed and war still rule as much as they did in 1968. Children are being murdered in the name of freedom and nationalism. The world won't change, but we can change our own selves. "You better free your mind instead". John's voice still speaks from the grave. All you have to do is listen. Thanks to Sam for this Bagism tradition!!

John would have been 64 years old today had he lived but his music will live on forever speaking as a dedicated Beatles fan. He was a rock legend who spoke his mind but never alienated his fans like some artist because he knew what he was talking about. Lennon was a rock & roll rebel without any apologies as well as a peace activist & a house husband which should never be forgotten.

I've got quite a lot to thank John for, I feel. Not only for having a firm hand in saving, re-shaping and changing the course of popular music by creating music sung straight from pit of the heart in a way that silently told you that he was one of us. Music that has saved lives - I myself can plum for this - I once told one guy The Beatles music was the only reason I was still breathing....he says "Oh, I'm sorry" - so I could only reply with "Why? I'm not....I'm still breathing!" But also music that we're still hearing new things in and realising things about the songs all the time, all these years later. And.....on top of that....without trying, he made it incredibly sexy to be from Liverpool in the parts of the world where it matters the most and also made having to wear glasses very cool! Thanks John for making being me into a good thing. "You can't kill off all the violent people and the murderers, you'd have to kill off the government" ( 1969 ) Life's better when John's music, wit & wisdom is there. Sadly, sadly missed........
