This photo was taken last May in NYC. It is the John Lennon Memorial in Central Park close to where he was shot and killed. It's located in a beautiful, peaceful part of the park, an oasis of quiet in an otherwise noisy New York City. Sheltered by trees, the spot felt protected and safe. Hand written notes were placed in the middle, as well as hand made paper cranes, a symbol of peace.

John Lennon imagined a world without war, a world without religion, a world without hunger. It's really not too much to ask, is it?

I still mourne John Lennon and am sad he was taken from us too soon. And, no, I don't think it's too much to ask for peace in this world but many, many of my friends think I'm a pacifist dunderhead for imagining it. A lot of people thought the same of John, so we're in good company, yes? Great blog!
