BED PEACE starring John Lennon & Yoko Ono

 

Message from Yoko Ono


Dear Friends,
In 1969, John and I were so naïve to think that doing the Bed-In would help change the world.
Well, it might have. But at the time, we didn't know.
It was good that we filmed it, though.
The film is powerful now.
What we said then could have been said now.
In fact, there are things that we said then in the film, which may give some encouragement and inspiration to the activists of today. Good luck to us all.
Let's remember WAR IS OVER if we want it.
It's up to us, and nobody else.
John would have wanted to say that.
Love, yoko

I checked that and it's still up for debate. Some say that others deny it. His wife sure hasn't moved to the right. I've followed her for some time. I read this article:
