  1. I wrote this song in an effort to actually put the ideas in “Imagine” to work. John and Yoko asked us to imagine and they asked us to imagine peace. In this song “End of War”, I imagined war in the past-tense, as something we used to do. I pay tribute to the song “Imagine” in the second verse. )Feel free to google “end of war” with my name “eric colville” to see the video and hear the song. It appears links are not allowed on this page.)

  2. I love you so much John. We’ll have peace someday

    I learnt the true meaning of peace from John and Yoko. I feel grateful to understand this overpowering wave of peace and love, it’s warming. I am sure John is in the highest form of peace now. Thank you so much for everything, it brings me happiness to know that Yoko is keeping John’s message alive, as are we all. Love to everyone.

    “Help, I need somebody.” The first time I heard about the peace tower, I saw information about becoming a world peace citizen. It had information about a passport and everything. We are planning to visit Iceland and go to Viðey Island. Now I look and see nothing about the citizenship. “I do need somebody.” Then I can “get by with a little help from my friends.”

  12. WHAT IF…

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a request. Please, I would very much appreciate the assistance
    Of anyone computer savvy enough to send the following message around the world to as many newspaper editorial sections in as many languages as possible.

    My Dear Co-inhabitants of our Beautiful Planet:

    What if we didn’t have as many guns?

    What if we didn’t have as much fear? (f.alse e.vidence a.ppearing r.eal)

    What if we had strong, satisfying tools to heal our fears or at least put them in healthy perspective?

    What if our overall mental health and our healing mental illness techniques were as advanced as our technology? Don’t you think that could really cut down on the mass murders on this planet? Every single one can be traced back to mental illness.

    What if we really lived by the concepts: Acceptance, Unconditional Love, Mutual Respect, Trust, Support, and knew how to really listen?

    What if we were to evolve to this level of living?

    What if we invested our money in this direction?

    What if we the human beings, of planet Earth, decided to make the concept of a super power obsolete?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”!!

    What if embarrassment and “saving face” were likewise to become obsolete?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if the USA initiated an, on going/on growing, series of Peace Talks, round table discussions with equally rotating facilitators, inviting every world leader, NGO, the military, and CEO’s of the planet’s top 20 corporations? Say these talks were held somewhere neutral like Switzerland or Greenland or maybe better still, with stronger symbolization, not so neutral, in the middle of the mid-east. Then the world would know that these talks were sincere. They’re simulcasted live on radio and TV, with NO commercials, all over the world in every language. And, woven through out the entire proceedings is a totally honest, very thorough, cross-cultural educational program. This could be paid for out of each countries military budget according to its size/ability to pay a fair percentage of the expenses. And, the United Nations would be responsible for the highest quality, most humanitarian/respectful security system ever created. In other words, “People, check your guns, etc…, at the door!” What if…?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we spent as much time, effort, energy, attitude, and money on enhancing our humanity as we do on being consumers?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if parenting and inter-personal communication classes were set up, meeting on a regular basis (2, 3 times week, for example, in every neighborhood, with parents, children, and teachers participating equally? Facilitated by mental health professionals using the most progressive and humanitarian techniques
    The goal here is feeling heard, which IS more powerful than the most powerful weapon in existence!!! Because, when we feel heard (respected) we are a lot less likely to reach for a gun…Aretha Franklin is correct “R E S P E C T” in all aspects of our lives..

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if all nations guilty of slavery, past or present, and Indigenous genocide, physical and emotional, decided to heal those incredibly DEEP wounds?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we healed ALL forms of emotional and physical abuse?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we all decided to work cooperatively to bring our emotional and psychological growth up with our technological?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we were all willing to assist each other in letting go of our fossil fuel and other addictions both physical and emotional?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we worked together to build a worldwide, spider-web designed, public transportation system, one neighborhood at a time? What if this system was the most economical, safest, most efficient, most environmentally sound, and most comfortable ever conceived of…?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we all decided to work cooperatively to be more Motivated by Love than fear, more Motivated by Cooperation than competition and willing to Listen more with Acceptance than judgment and criticism? In other words, listen and speak from our Hearts. Is this really that threatening and or intimidating? Is it really not womanly or manly to be alive in this way?
    What if we decided to replace our societally programmed gender roles for respect?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we co-created an international school action that touched every grade and every school? And an educational concept that consisted of the most honest, most direct, most respectful, deepest and most thorough cross cultural education possible, specifically designed for every grade and every school on the planet. This, of course, would consist of religion, race, philosophy, politics, Love, Respect (a key ingredient of love) all the arts, all sports, all communication styles, all the ways that we interact…. Always emphasizing, teaching and supporting each other to have the healthiest self-esteem. And, REALLY, the only appropriate leader there is………Who we see in the mirror.

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we the people of planet earth dismantled the military industrial complex, which Dwight Eisenhower warned us about in the 50’s, who listened? What if… we took the 2.5 billion dollars for 1 b-2 bomber, 2.5 billion for 1 polaris submarine, 1.5 million a year to maintain 1 aircraft carrier, and the 100 million land mines in 62 countries of this world that cost $3.00 a piece to put in the ground and $1000.00 a piece to take them out…

    WHAT IF WE took this money and put it into mental health research that creates healing, education, healthcare, and housing, repairing our national infrastructure, and further/deeper, faster, and more efficient public transportation research?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we took the word “Industry” away from medical?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if everyone got 100% choice as to practioner and medication and traditional western health care was combined holistically with all the alternatives in the world?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we took that same “Industry” away from music and the other arts?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if we put as many arts courses as science and math courses in every school?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if all of us, all over this world, became aware that the two biggest “plagues” on our planet are Little and No self-esteem?

    What if we began to help each other heal these “plagues”

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”


    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    What if what you’ve just read was accepted as genuine possibility and Not simply dismissed as idealism

    What if this were not an excuse for maintaining the status quo?

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    My Good Friends All Over This World, What if…………..

    With the utmost Love & Respect,

    Andrew Rosenthal

    And please know, “There is only Love and a Cry for Love…” (Stan Dale) I believe that EVERY CITIZEN OF THIS PLANET is yearning, longing, and crying to have healthy self-esteem, be accepted, respected, and feel heard. I believe that this is especially true for all abusers both emotional and physical and all those with war on their minds. Let’s declare that war no longer serves us in any way shape or form. Whether it’s between countries or perpetuated by individuals. Let’s declare it obsolete, once and for all. Let’s declare and wage Peace!!! Let us all work together all over this planet to “make it so”… Thank you Captain Picard

    “Ask for 100% of what you want 100% of the time, be willing to hear “No” and negotiate for the difference..”
    Stan Dale, deceased, Founder, Human Awareness Institute
    “Awareness + Experience = Potency”

    Thank you!
    And may the sun always shine in and from our hearts…

    “YES WE CAN” “Imagine” “A LOVE SUPREME”

    Thank you Barack Obama for “Yes We Can”, Musician/Composer John Coltrane for “A Love Supreme”, John Lennon, for “Imagine”, Human Relations Communication Master, Stan Dale for above quotes and inspiration; All other life in the universe who feel that the way to peace is through acceptance, knowledge, understanding, respect, and Love!
