Happy Birthday John Lennon(9 October 1940)
A Happy Birthday to this lovely man who changed my life :3
John Winston Ono Lennon
October 9th, 1940 - December 8th, 1940
“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.”
John has been a substantial part of my life for as long as I can remember. When celebrating my own birthday on October 9th, I constantly think about him, and how thankful I am to have his music in my life. I have no doubt the world would be a better place if he had never been taken away from us, and I hope very dearly that John knew, when he died, how many lives he affected. He’s been with me through the hardest of times, even though he died several years before I was born. The fact that he is no longer with us has always been upsetting to me and to so many others, but, in the end, John is immortal through his songs, and as long as they continue to play, he will live on. Happy 74th birthday to one of the greatest songwriters that ever was, the one and only John Lennon.
"They say it’s your birthday…"
Happy birthday to a beautiful soul who should have been 74 today (9th Oct)
"I just feel that we’ve all been deprived."
"So those people that thought they knew John, well they did."
