It was 30 years ago today, when his voice was silenced.

Imagine, from the sky above us, his words could be heard this morning.

Imagine what he would say as he viewed countries around the globe who are willing to sacrifice lives in the name of nothing worth dying for.

Imagine what he would say about religion as he watched our own country show such outright hatred for the Muslims in our midst.

Imagine what he would say about the powerful in this country and all their allies who continue to gather all the possessions, their greed without boundaries, and watch all the pain and hunger of others without any thought of a brotherhood of man.

We would surely say, in today's world, 30 years after the death of John Lennon, that he was a dreamer. We would say that the world does not live as one and it is hard to imagine, in this time and place, that his vision could become a reality. I imagine John Lennon would be sad today to see where the last 30 years have taken us.
