Imagine JOHN LENNON 1971

The artist John Lennon, who was a former member of The Beatles, sung songs such as Give peace a Chance, Mother, and Instant Karma

Lyrics:

"You may say i'm a dreamer

But i'm not the only one

I hope someday you join us

And the world will be as one"

These lyrics show the sign of the times and how many of the people in the US dreamed of a time where they were not plagued by war and death was around every corner. The protests were meant to show the government that peace is the way to go and that Vietnam is not the answer. When the song was recorded the war in Vietnam was happening. The inspiration of the song was peace and to stop the violence.
