Imagine all the people living life in peace
"Today more than ever, we should finally hear these lyrics ring true" ~ Noah, Age 13

When Noah heard that the alternate right was coming to protest in Laguna Beach, he wanted to take action in a positive way. Instead of being against the protesters and fighting hate with hate, he wanted to share a positive message throughout his community. So, he fought hate with peace.

Noah and his family spent their day (Saturday) walking around Laguna Beach handing out the lyrics to John Lennon’s “Imagine” as well as taping the lyrics to buildings, trees, and unity ribbons on parking meters. Noah met other like-minded people as his little sister handed out the lyrics saying, "Have a peaceful day!" Those people joined in the effort and helped pass out the lyrics. One woman even went home, printed more lyrics out, and spread them throughout her neighborhood.

The day concluded at the Sawdust festival in the Laguna Beach canyon, as people sang imagine with the lyrics in the hands. This surely shows that peace and love can always win, even in the most unexpected of ways.

Imagine

John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
Living for Today...

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 may say I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one.

Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people,
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will live as one.
