And So This is Christmas


and What have you done?
What a voice. Silenced too soon.

Imagine Every year, Yoko has paid for a NYT ad and I have torn it off and taped it to my front door. I hope the mailman enjoys it.
(this video of Imagine has graphic war images and video. if viewing with small children, click off when the song starts, about half way through. the first video is vintage John/Yoko footage)

My five year old daughter was watching this clip with me. I was explaining who john Lennon was when
The war video started. It was probably the worst shock of her life.
She ran into her room crying. I went to comfort her, at first I was outraged that I had exposed her to the graphic nature of war, and then I realized I should be grateful that she is not actually exposed to such horrors (so far).

thylacine,
I'm sorry it scared your daughter. Yoko made an incredibly powerful video. It made me cry too, that's why I posted it. I'll put a warning on the post.
