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.
On October 9, 1940, John Winston Ono Lennon was born. Today marks his 69th birthday! Not only was John Lennon an amazing English rock musician, he was a confident peace activist, poetic singer-songwriter, and unbiased author. Unfortunately on December 8, 1980, he was murdered in front of his NYC home and a great sadness came over the world as we lost one of the greatest icons of our lifetime.

In honor of Lennon, I named my kitten after him.
