This anthem for PEACE seems the perfect fit for celebrating the US finally approving the legalisation of Gay Marriage in all of it’s 50 States.
Freedom to Marry — Just Imagine….
IMAGINE is a song written and performed by the English musician John Lennon.
The best-selling single of his solo career, its lyrics encourage the listener to imagine a world at peace without the barriers of borders or the divisiveness of religions and nationalities, and to consider the possibility that the focus of humanity should be living a life unattached to material possessions.
President Obama welcomed the decision, saying it “affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts.”
“Today,” he said, “we can say, in no uncertain terms, that we have made our union a little more perfect.” and “When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free.”
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the historic decision: “No longer may this liberty be denied. No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
On June 26 2015 the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution guarantees the right for same-sex couples to marry in all 50 US states. When will Australia follow? Imagine…..
IMAGINE was not released as a single in the UK until 1975, when it hit #6. Shortly after Lennon’s death in 1980, it was re-released in the UK and became a #1 hit.
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
On a daily quest for Freedom
