Birthday Wishes for John - 1999


October 9, 1999 would have been John Lennon's 59th birthday. During his life, John's biggest wish was for all the people of the world to live together as one. In honor of John's birthday, Bagism visitors were asked to make a wish. Here are their comments.

Many thanks to Chloe, a frequent visitor to Bagism, for delivering our messages to the Strawberry Fields memorial in New York's Central Park on John's birthday. She also provided the following photos of her day at the park. Click the photos to see larger versions.
Imagine Mosaic
Chloe places our messages on the mosaic alongside artwork, photos, flowers, and other items placed there by fans.
David Peel
David Peel, a friend of John's from the early 70s, and other musicians entertain the crowd. Peel is the one with the guitar near the center.
Dakota building
A large group of fans sing Beatles songs while the Dakota building looms in the background.

Yeah, I wish you were still with us John. But I'd settle for that long sought after peace you wanted for us. I wish everyone would learn to treat each other as they would like to be treated. I wish people could be happy just being who they are. I wish people would learn to be happy even if they aren't rich. I wish everyone in the world enough to eat, so the bulging stomachs we see on TV are from too much to eat rather than too little. I wish we could all learn to see each other has people rather than races. I wish we could learn it's easier not to be violent than it is to be violent. I wish we could learn that we are all each other's best friends on this world, because only we know what it takes to get thru this life. I wish I could be a better person, maybe I can? I wish everyone will wish for the same things I do. And that we'll all try hard to make our individual wishes come true. Happy 59th Johnny! We love ya!

I wish, I hope, that wherever he is, if he is even aware, that he can see that he still lives through his music, poetry, and artwork and that people all over the world appreciate what he has done for all of us.

i wish that everyone, everywhere, would have a good day. This is the one day of the year that peace could really happen. Be nice. I wish that for one day that people would stop and think about what they're doing to each other. I wish that we would all be really nice, and john would watch us from wherever he is and smile. That's what i wish, I wish for John Lennon to smile.

Happy birthday John. I hope that you know, in some way or another, that I love you. On October 9, 1999, on what would've been your 59th birthday, I wish for the world the same that you did peace, love, happiness, and an image of the world living for today. The picture of your death still haunts me, and I can only continue to desire that all this to have been a nightmare. Come back John Lennon, in whatever form possible. Here on earth we miss you, for music, for poetry, for all that you have been and have yet to be to us.

I wish that "mainstream" media would understand John for the genius he was. Enough of saying that he was childish for hoping for peace as he did with Imagine. Nobody critized the book Utopia, they even call it a classic, but the world they portray is not even as close to an ideal world as Imagine was.

I wish John was still alive and making music today. Even if he wasn't making music, I'd do anything to get him back. ANYTHING to stop his senseless murder. Hell, I'd go back in time to December 8th, 1980 and stop the psycho from killing John. Unfortunately, this is all just a fantasy. I'd also wish that the world would live as one. Give peace a chance! Happy 59th birthday John! You're still much loved down here. Your legacy will last forever. All you need is love.

John, Tomorrow I will be thinking of you (not that I don't already :)). You would've been 59 years old. What would you and your son Sean have done if you were here? I wonder what you are doing now? Maybe everyone in Rock 'n' Roll Heaven is planning a surprise party for you! But I just want to say that I'll always remember you, you had a very interesting life. Since you loved chocolate, I'll eat alot of it tomorrow! LOL! :)))) HAPPY 59TH BIRTHDAY, JOHN! All You Need Is Love, Kristi

John: I wish for peace, any form, anywhere, anyhow, anytime. I wish for people. I wish for Yoko. I wish for myself. I wish for the future. I wish for the past. I wish for the now. I wish for Good. I wish for reality. I wish for progression. I wish for evolution. I wish for someday not having to make most of these wishes.

Ah, that's better, back to the long messages again :) cos last year we could only write a few words on a card and I couldn't say all I had to say. But anyway, happy birthday Johnny boy! Have a good one mate, I shall be listening to all your great solo work tomorrow night (and playing loads of Beatles tunes during the day) and having a couple of beers in you honour. I still love ya John, as I said a couple of years ago I know you don't dig all that hero-worship stuff, but we can't help it dude, cos you're such a top bloke! You're an awesome songwriter, musician and author, a great singer and an all-round diamond geezer. Rock On! Peace Rich

What can I say that was not said about you, John? Being a big fan of the Beatles, you mean so much to me that sometimes I even think you are a myth, not a real person. But, "knowing you, you'd probably laugh" at this remark. I even remember the first time I saw "Imagine" the film, and watching the part where everybody's crying because the man with no name had killed you. I tried to understand how someone could have done that to you. I couldn't understand it, and I cried. And now, this being your last birthday of the century, I want to tell you just thank you for your music. Because I think that's what you wanted to be remembered for. Your music, that timeless gift you gave all of us.

Happy 59th John LENNON'S Music Lives Forever

When John Lennon's birthday comes, as it has for the past 59 years, my mind starts thinking about what he said and what he gave to the world. He alone was just one man, yet he did more for us than most of us do for ourselves. Like a fictional writer he gave us a look at his world, one of peace, love, and brotherhood (sister too). A seemingly unreachable utopian paradise. Yet as he sang he touched so many lives, that whether we chose to listen or not we were still affected. Even years after his tragic death, cut down in his prime, we still remember him as his music and words continue to reach new generations of people. At the tender age of 15 I know of the world that he speaks of. My wish for John Lennon's birthday is that the world would come together (over him), and see what he saw, what I see, and what every Lennon fan see's...the world as it could be, a beautiful paradise.

well there goes another year, luv. 59 eh? well, it's been an interesting and stressful year since i last made a post to you personally. i've met someone else that might, hopefully, ease the pain i had last year. music is doing better, much better. i've been teaching people about themselves and about the limitlessness of the possibilities in life. i think i'm really beginning to make a difference the way you taught me to. i love you and miss you being in my life the way it used to be. that's my "fault", of course. but now i am using what i learned from you, and i think that's what you wanted in the first place from all of us, not just praise. happy birthday. my wish? to keep going the way i'm going and not lose track so much that i stop helping the world. XOX, masha

Well, what can I say? I'm only 14, but your music has inspired me and helped me through my short life. I'm not into hero worship, and I know you're just a human being. A flawed human being, like the rest of us. But unlike the rest of us, your words touched the world, and still ring true. I know you'd probably laugh at us talking to you as if you were still here, but maybe you are. Happy Birthday, from a fellow dreamer.

Happy birthday John (an hour or so early though in Liverpool it is after midnight). It would have been cool to see you be 59, but it wasn't meant to be. I do, however, love you and the vibe you tried to capture for the world. I know you wern't perfect because you were only human, but you did at least a tiny bit of good for people like me. Thanks. Anyway, my one wish is for everyone to start listening to each other to stop the violence in the world. Peace and (though you are gone) I hope you are having a wonderful birthday. Love, L Rita

I grew up madly in love with John Lennon and to this day will name The Beatles as my all time favorite music group. John Lennon was my personal favorite out of the four. John was THE ONE! Ten years ago I would have given a much different answer to this question because I was naive to a lot about his personal life. Naive mainly to the fact that he abandoned his son Julian. My wish for John's 59th birthday would be for him to have reconciled with his first born son and make ammends for the neglect and absence in his life. I still love John, and now we can love his son Julian and his great contribution to the music world. I am 45 years old and even at my age absolutely love and appreciate Julian's music. John would be "extremely proud". You say it's your birthday? Happy Birthday to ya...

I do not wish anything on John's 59th birthday. We won't make wishes and dreams and hopes come true. We need to take action to learn about other cultures, other ways of life, other people, other religions, other times. John Lennon did that. He gave us more than music; he gave us a chance to see the errors of our ways. And we're still not listening. We hear the sounds, but we do not heed the message. Give peace a chance doesn't have any meaning unless we do something to make that reality. Give everyone a chance to live in peace. Don't keep it all to yourself; share your inner love and passion. I am only 23 years old, but John Lennon entered my life when I was about 11, and since then, he has kept me on task with my goals. We can all celebrate his birthday ... but remember him everyday. Imagine what this world would be like if John Lennon had not existed. We miss John Lennon because he existed. You exist. I exist. Let's make something happen. Do something to help others. Educate yourself. Empower yourself. Do something you feel passionate about. We are all glad John Lennon made music. I think he'd be glad to know people continue to care about him. Likewise, I think he'd want to know that we're all still working toward his dream of world peace. Let's make world peace a goal: do a small part each week to make it happen. I miss you, John Lennon, and I will forever love what you have done for some of us wayward people. Peace and love, fellow Beatles and Lennon fans. --Chris

I want to say that John Lennon has been a big influence in my life, and I think many others. He tried to send the message out to us that all we need is love. When truly that is what we need. Some of the major problems that we face every day could be solved if we all got together and tried to love one another and join together not against anyone else but for each other. No more war , no comparison, NO HATE but just LOVE, PEACE, and HARMONY!!!! I love you John Lennon! You are truly a wonderful man!

I hope that everyone would believe that the peace will come to the whole world some day. And if everybody were messengers of peace, it would come sooner, and the world would be better place to live.

Happy Birthday to the True Genius! I will lay my traditional StarGazer Lily on your star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame today along with the other fans who will be there to pay tribute to you on your 59th birthday. I thank you for the years of pleasure and spiritual uplifting you've given to me which I have passed on to my children who have in turn shared with their friends. My grandchildren and their children will surely keep your memory and legacy alive for many, many years to come. We truly miss you and wish so much that you were here with us. Yet, we've learned in the last 19 years how to accept that you will always be alive in our memories, our hearts, and in some cases, our lives. THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'VE GIVEN TO THE WORLD. I always wonder what this world would be like had December 8, 1980 never happened. I do know this: this world would have never lost THE TRUE GENIUS THAT YOU WERE (ARE) AND WE WOULD ALL BE JUST A LITTLE BIT HAPPIER. So, Happy Birthday to you John Winston Ono Lennon....Dr. Winston O'Boogie....the other half of the Nerk Twins. We Love You and Miss You. Forever, One of Your Biggest Fans! Kim

As you look upon this mortal coil from where peace is eternal and the answers to all questions are simple and obvious, my birthday wish to you is- may those of us remaining here open our hearts and minds just enough to realise that "Love Is The Answer" Thank you, John.

In honor of John Lennon's birthday--one of the most important days in history because the earth was blessed by the arrival of an astounding poet, musician, artist, and activist--I want to make a wish for the lonely, broken hearted people living in the world today, those who fight for good against evil and who are weary from the fight. I wish for them to have peace, love, truth and justice in their lifetimes. I wish for them to realize the impact they are making and to have the strength and hope to continue. I love you, John. Thank you for the music that enriches our lives and lets us know that somebody understood our pain.

Happy birthday, John! My wish is for people around the world to set aside their differences and live together in peace. The people in this world have a lot to learn from each other. Love is the answer. I also wish for people to not go to war; and to instead, talk out their problems. I also wish for people to have enough to eat, and not go hungry. John, you said it best: "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you join us, and the world will live as one." Peace, everyone! :)

I will always love you John, my life wouldn't be the same without you. What you did for the world peace, was and still is uncredible. I hope people could live together as one, without fear and pain, without violence, without hatred and war on some fine day. I wish you're in peace.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN: I would like to say that if you were still alive, the world would be a very much better place and i know you probably try to make people see that we are destroying ourselves and our planet and then, nothing will care of nothing. Thanks John because "I found out"
