Bed Peace

In 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono held a bed-in for peace. The bed-in was filmed and made into a documentary. When the documentary was released online, Yoko Ono released the following message:

"Dear Friends,

In 1969, John and I were so na├»ve to think that doing the Bed-In would help change the world.
Well, it might have. But at the time, we didn’t know.

It was good that we filmed it, though.
The film is powerful now.
What we said then could have been said now.

In fact, there are things that we said then in the film, which may give some encouragement and inspiration to the activists of today. Good luck to us all.

Let’s remember WAR IS OVER if we want it.
It’s up to us, and nobody else.
John would have wanted to say that.

Love, yoko"

I absolutely love John Lennon (read more here and here) and love that this documentary is online and free. Also, with the holiday season here, it's officially time to listen to Lennon's "Happy Xmas."


Hope y'all have a wonderful, peaceful weekend!
