Birthday Wishes for John - 1999

October 9, 1999 would have been John Lennon's 59th birthday. During his life, John's biggest wish was for all the people of the world to live together as one. In honor of John's birthday, Bagism visitors were asked to make a wish. Here are their comments.

Many thanks to Chloe, a frequent visitor to Bagism, for delivering our messages to the Strawberry Fields memorial in New York's Central Park on John's birthday. She also provided the following photos of her day at the park. Click the photos to see larger versions.

Chloe places our messages on the mosaic alongside artwork, photos, flowers, and other items placed there by fans.

David Peel, a friend of John's from the early 70s, and other musicians entertain the crowd. Peel is the one with the guitar near the center.

A large group of fans sing Beatles songs while the Dakota building looms in the background.
Ivy, another Bagism regular, stands at the mosaic, located in the center of the memorial.

Greetings John! I'm only 14, but you have touched my life in such a way that no one could possibly understand. Thank you for being there for me in spirit. My wishes are that you are happy where you are. May you be in peace. I wish that I could touch the world the way you did. Someday when I become famous, the world will know that you were my inspiration and my role model.I'm sure you're peaceful where you are, and that's what you always wanted. One day I will make my way to the sky and meet you. Happy Birthday John. I love you so much. Thank you Mr. Lennon.

Happy Birthday, John! How does it feel to have the world in your arms and your life in our memories?

Happy birthday, old chap. Everyone wishes you were still here, doing the things you do best, making music and art. But we are making the best of what you left us, even though it is nothing like the real thing. I wish for last words that don't begin with a scream.

We're all strangers in a sense, yet we're all bound together by the simple fact that we share the same world and certain interests. It's not as easy or as enjoyable to go wherever you're going alone. We're all headed for some unknown destination and we all take different paths which will inevitably cross. Some for a moment and some forever. Life is so much more when you have people that you trust enough to share both your troubles and triumphs with. Be kind to one another. Happy birthday John.

John, Where do I begin? I wish you could see the influences you've had in this world. I wish you could see how beautiful your sons turned out to be. I wish you could see how much Yoko has helped your memory live. I wish you could see this website. I wish you and Sean could be sharing a birthday cake right now. I guess it won't happen, though, physically anyhow. Thank you so much for the music, the influence, the art, the ideals, the philosophies, the love, and most of all thank you for being you. I can't put into words what you've done for me and for he world. People say there is no such thing as perfection, and they're right. Yet, when I look at you I can't help but think that this is a normal human being whom is as close to perfection as one will get. You were normal in a very unique, beautiful, touching, and amazing way. You were one of God's many gifts to the world, and I am thankful for your life. I just wish it could have been a little longer. We all love you. And, my John, love is all you need. Happy Brithday, John Ono Lennon. Love, Laura (Anna)

John, I don't know where the world would be today if you hadn't "imagined". Your thoughts give strength to people in times of need. On your birthday I wish for your dreams and legacy to live on and to continue to touch the lives of many. THE WORLD WAS BLESSED TO KNOW JOHN LENNON!

John, I would like to wish you a happy birthday today. I wish for two things: 1.Your birthday becomes a National Holiday. 2.The Evil Mother who killed you gets his parole denied and he has to rot in jail. That, and another prisoner cuts him up like a fish.

The wish of course is world peace, but to do that I guess we should first wish for the big money hungry industrialists to catch a snap and realize their spiritual life is more important than those all-mighty dollars. Also I wish (two right?) for the governments involvement in Lennon's assasination to be made public. You can't kill the masses' heroes and get away with it. God Bless.

I don’t really know what to ‘wish’ for today…do I ‘wish’ you could be here to celebrate another October 9th? The answer to that is easy…of course I do. Not for us…for ‘you’. But at the same time, I wish you could be here to celebrate another April 17th, July 23rd, February 6th…and the list goes on. It’s 365 wishes long…each one representing a sunrise you didn’t see…a missed chance to share a special time with your family…a lost moment of creativity…still so strong, so vibrant, so filled with so much promise…not for us, but for you. The chance to experience the happiness you’d finally felt within your grasp when you left us. A chance to do anything in life you chose to do…simply because it was your choice to make. It’s simple, really. I wish you were here…just because. I know your spirit is strong, that a soul like yours could never be contained within the boundaries of ‘this’ world…it’s so much bigger than that. You’re with all of us today, as our thoughts are with you. Happy 18th birthday in Heaven, my dear friend. I love you dearly and miss you always.

If you could see now how much your music as inspired so many people, especially me. You will NEVER be forgotten in the History books, and generations will learn about a Lennon Legend. At least we still can see a part of you in your 2 sons, Julian Lennon and Sean Lennon.

Peace, love, and happiness. Its all good. Thanks John

John - your sound and vision spans generations - geographical bounds - classes - races - sexes. Thank you for bringing us together. Thank you for showing us what really matters. Thanks for your truth. May you know the mark you have made across the universe.

Oct 9, 1999
Well Johnny, what do you know? Another birthday, eh? Of course I wish that you could be here to celebrate your birthday today. But there's never been a day when I haven't wished you could be here. I wish that the world living as one was truth instead of something we have to imagine. One thing that you've taught me though, John, is that if you want something you have to build it yourself. I know I can't just sit on my ass listening to Imagine and say "gee, that would be rather nice, wouldn't it?", I have to really do something about it. I could go on and on, John, but I guess I just want you to know how much you've taught me, inspired me, and changed my life. You're still with us in your music... and music never dies. Love ya forever, dear friend.

Oct 9, 1999
i love you man!! you're my best friend. shine on //o-o\

John: You will always be a genius. I have the Sgt. Pepper's CD on right now. It still sounds fresh! Thanks for the great music..

Oct 9, 1999
Happy Birthday, John! Each year I ask my high school government classes to tell me what one person, living or dead, they would most like to spend an hour with. I always have at least 2 or 3 that want to spend an hour with you. My wish would be that they could. As much as you symbolized hope for our generation, I'm happy to say that you still do.

Dear John, you have inspired others and myself through your words. You encouraged us to make love not war. You could beat anyone in a battle of wits any day, or you could make the ignorant realize their faults. For that I want to thank you for revolutionizing the way I and others think. I want to thank you for being yourself and not answering to anyone else but yourself. You may not be a god, but you were truly a remarkable human being. This world was lucky to have a person of your talent and individuality. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You shall live on in my heart and the hearts of others forever. I love you John, FOREVER... Thank you, Happy Birthday. "Imagine"

Hey Hey Johnny.....I don't know what to say that hasn't been said. My wish would be that this was all a horrible hoax concocted to give you complete anonymity..course that would make no sense since you were only just then breaking back out into the world of music. OK..My other wish....other than the obvious, or semi-obvious wishes..perhaps that a vault full of incredible Lennon originals recorded in full..never before heard..crca '71, were to suddenly appear. I just wish you were still here...The Dream is NEVER over John!

Happy birthday John ! I hope that you are happy up there but I guess that you must not be so proud of the human race these days. Luckily, the ones who love you will folow your dream and try to get everyone to love each other. without you, I dont know what we would be. In some way, you gave your life for peace. Happy 59th Birthday John W. Lennon! I love you ! Laurie.

I wish you were here today and that you were a trotskyist and we were celebrating the victory of the proletarian world revolution. I also wish Paul McCartney would start to eat meat again. Happy birthday John.

Hey John, even if you arn't here with us today, your music still lives on, i want to wish you a happy birthday. And many other things i would wish but there is a list that would go on and on. you have made a huge influence on me even though i never lived through your time. I have loved you and your music ever since i was three, and even before that my mom would hold me as a baby and dance with me to your music. Luv you forever. Samantha

Today should be the commemoration of one of the world's greatest leaders' birth. But his dream was slashed down by somebody we all despise. I wish, besides from him being alive today, that his ideal of a world in peace could come true. For peace is all we seek in this time of tragedy and desolation.

All I can wish you is a Happy Birthday, and that soon your vision (which is really everyone's ideal vision) of peace would be realized. The world is in shambles now, and everyone is losing their integrity. I pray and hope everyday that people will turn out right, but more people lose their innocence and happiness faster and younger everyday. Your music keeps me strong, and that there was such a kindred spirit such as yours once, even before I was born. Thank you so much. I love you John. If we're going by three wishes, my third wish would be for you and I to have a smoke over guitars sometime.

My wish is one that i think John would have really admired: I want to develop the kind of artistic talent & love of music that he had. Maybe he was dyslexic & you can't hear him on earlier recordings, maybe he was a crappy father, he cheated on his wives, etc etc etc, but that bastard sure loved music. John gave us the most precious gift, MUSIC, which opened the minds of a generation, made them ask themselves questions to change their outlook, their opinions, themselves. I believe that a dream of John's was for everyone to feel what he did when he was happy.....To be able to break off & create somehting of their own, to feel the elation & pride & openness you feel when you create something that carries YOU within it.....I am reminded of a quote by Kurt Vonnegut: "Artists," he said, "are people who say, 'I can't fix my country or my state or my city, or even my marriage. But by golly, I can make this square of canvas, or this eight-and-a-half-by-eleven piece of paper, or this lump of clay, or these twelve bars of music, exactly what they ought to be!'"

Merry birthday, John. My wish is for everyone to find their purpose in life, whatever that purpose may be...singing, writing, raising children, teaching...Find what YOU were placed on earth to do, and use that to help people. John did. I love you, John.

John, Happy Birthday! I made you and Sean a cake and everything. I could have only wished that you could have lived to see how well you brought you son up. You are an idol to many people, including me. I want to wish you a VERY happy birthday to you where ever you may be. We love you all from the bottom of our hearts! I hope you are happy now. Happy Birthday once again, to you, and your beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, darling Sean. With Lots of Love and Admaration, Sara

I wish you a most respectful, Happy Birthday, dear John... I feel that the world lost a true Champion, on that day we lost you, my friend... I now Imagine you in a better place, free from the bonds of this Earth, free to nourish the stars from your beautiful spirit, as you nourished my heart, in your time on Earth... as your words, and your memory, still feed my soul... Thank you, sweet Johnny...

Wishes are hard to make because I always feel like I'm not doing enough to live up to them- but I do want, with all my heart, for people to understand and love each other, not just pretend to, or say they do, but to honestly 'Give Peace a Chance'. Thank you, John

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Me and my friend Jake threw you a party yesterday..we watched all movies w/ u in them..listened to your music and made u a cake. If I could have a wish, my unpractical one would be to have you be alive and well...but my actual wish would be for all the hatred in the world to stop. All the pessimistic attitudes and the negative comments, that even I'm guilty of. That would be grand. So have a good one John, I love you as does all of the world. :)

No one has ever influenced the world more like you John. With your music your beliefs and everything you did for us. We as people owe so much to you. The world needs a person like you to show the way to peace and love. Without you John, we would still be living in misery. I wish you were still with us giving us awesome music and stuff to think about. You arose awareness about peace and about what we can do to make it happen. THANK YOU JOHN!!!!!!!!!! We miss you.

John and his music have touched the world in a way so few people have. I wish that everyone finds peace and happiness in their own lives, and finds a way, in turn, to pass it on to someone else. If we all make one person happy, then that's a start to help change the world.

Dear John I hope that one day I can bring as much love to this world as you have. With all my heart I long for the day when we will sing your name and finally proclaim the end of war. Then we can start to live and love in this short life. See you in the void. Steve

As John sang and spoke of Peace, I also wish for peace in this world. I hope that all people can learn to live as one, with each other and with this earth which we have the control over protecting or destroying.

I wish I could meet George Harrison, and there is another, but I cannot say it. If I believe in it, it will come true, I hope. *Peace, Love and Happiness to the world* Stephanie
