Music Monday: John Lennon

Today at work I was listening to a podcast about the wonderful musician John Lennon. Even though he is best known as being a member of the hit band The Beatles, he has managed to prove himself to be a powerful force. Even without the music he was able to make his mark in the world by advocating for peace and his involvement in the anti-war movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Songs like “Imagine” and “Give Peace a Chance” have all resonated with people today and of yesterday. John Lennon met a tragic end when he was shot to death on a street in New York City on December 8, 1980. Yet, even with a violent death he is still celebrated and remembered for his music, activism, and dream of a world peace.
