  1. Didn’t think it was that long ago. Sad

  2. “You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.” – John Lennon

    I’m one of the millions who wish you were still here to fight. You’ve already inspired generations and will continue to do so for generations to come. Maybe it’s not possible for this world to ever actually be at peace with itself, but we’ll keep fighting here until we see you smiling in the sky with diamonds again. We’ll all get there some day.
