Glee - Imagine

i've had this song stuck in my head for a while, a week at least, maybe longer.  i really wanted to post a video of john lennon singing it, but i couldn't find one that youtube would let me post.  it's okay, though, because i really like the glee cover of the song.  it's a beautiful song, with a beautiful message.

i think it's fitting that this song has been stuck in my head this week.  so much has happened in our world, between the murders in AZ (including the murder of the little girl who was born on one of the most tragic days in united states history), the riots and protests in tunisia and the boy who drowned in the flood because he wanted rescuers to save his brother first (a true hero, if you ask me).

it's enough to make you think.  we're such an intelligent species, but we must be doing something wrong.    so much hatred and violence in the world, and yet a glimmer of hope from our youth, children like christina green (AZ massacre) and jordan rice (flood victim).
