When I’m 64

When I’m 64:

“I am what survives of me.” —Erik Erikson

Make me an Instrument of your peace, a prayer.

Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.

— St. Francis of Assisi

‘Imagine,’ a song by John Lennon played here for your enjoyment.

‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ is an eye-opening documentary about John Lennon and his effort and impact on the peace movement. You should rent it.

Go rent ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon,’ it is an eye opener.  I really enjoyed it and learned quite a bit.  Very interesting. (Did you know that the U.S. government deported John Lennon in 1972 for what the Strom Thurmond letter requesting his deportation phrased, “…if John Lennon’s visa were revoked, it would serve as a ‘strategic countermeasure.‘”???)
