High Ideals

I wish John Lennon were still alive. What a good soul we lost on that dreadful December night, almost 26 years ago. Sniffle sniffle.

I turned on my XM to their "Holly" station this morning in an attempt motivate myself into decorating here. I, again, wish I could just snap my fingers--boom, done!

War is Over started playing. Gee whiz, what have we done? It's so sad the state of our world today.
"And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight"

If only it were that easy, right? Sending thoughts up to John to do what he can up there.

I've had Holly XM on during my decorating too. They often play that song!
They're also playing the The Christmas Shoes, which makes me cry every time I hear it...
I'm finally done decorating, and I am soooo glad!

I've always loved that song and every time I listen to it, I cry. Just yesterday I found the video for it and it's heartbreaking to see the casualties of war, especially children. Makes you wonder what John would be doing right now if he were still alive!! xox

I can't even imagine what John would think about the state of the world today! It's just such a mess.
