    Christmas '80 + this song = a yearlong journey helping the Salvation Army in my local community. The next summer I was offered a counselor's position at one of their summer camps; my parents would not allow it, and I regret not pressing the issue further. My life would have been so different; that summer was not good for me at home, but I did make the money at my summer job that allowed me to complete my college education.

    John Lennon. It's impossible to say how much I admired him and loved him. And this track was right there with Imagine.

    Recorded at the end of 1971, in time for Christmas of that year, let's revisit John & Yoko's wish for us to have a Happy Christmas with peace for all.
    Can you believe it has already been 46 years since its recording?

    Happy Christmas to all as we end 2017. Let's keep peaceful wishes in our minds as we enter 2018.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    The message is as timely today as it was 40 years ago. Support our troops by demanding that they be brought home today.
