'Ev'rybody's talking about _ Bagism, Madism, Dragism, Shagism, Ragism, Tagism _ This-ism, that-ism _ ism ism ism _ All we are saying is give peace a chance'
July 2009

'Give Peace a Chance' by the Plastic Ono Band was released in the United Kingdom, today in 1969.

'It just was a gradual development over the years. I mean last year was 'all you need is love.' This year, it's 'all you need is love and peace, baby.' Give peace a chance, and remember love. The only hope for us is peace. Violence begets violence. You can have peace as soon as you like if we all pull together. You're all geniuses, and you're all beautiful. You don't need anyone to tell you who you are. You are what you are. Get out there and get peace, think peace, and live peace and breathe peace, and you'll get it as soon as you like.'
John Lennon
