In human history there are certain watershed moments that must forever be remembered and discussed. Some of these moments should be cherished. The bombing of Liverpool on October 9, 1940, which produced the defining musical and social voice of the 20th century, should be kept close to our hearts and minds for the dichotomy it was: John Winston Lennon, prophet of peace, was born in the midst of terrible violence. Ironically, he went out by the same door he came in. But we will begin his mission again and again, and not rest until his vision has been fulfilled.

It is at the beginning, then, that we dedicate this blog to Lennon and his dream of peace and social justice for all. The Walrus Speaks will engage Beatles people in the thoughts of a higher reality, drenched in sparkling fun and pleasant memories (what to speak of melodies): "Just picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees, and marmalade skies..."

Fortified by this reverie, let us work for a better world, a world that lives as one. And while we are working for this world, let us always IMAGINE.
