c) The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon agrees with Elizabeth II. He thanked the Queen for her great devotion to the ideals of the UN: The Beatles conforms to these ideals by the words of Ban Ki-moon:

"United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the Queen and thanked her for her long-term devotion to the ideals of the United Nations, “from the challenges of the cold war to the threat of global warming, from the Beatles to Beckham”.

The house was owned by Lennon's aunt and uncle, Mimi and George Smith, with whom he lived from the ages of 5 until 22 due to irregular contact with, and estrangement from both his mother, Julia Lennon (Mimi Smith's sister) and father, Alfred Lennon.

c) The legendary Freddie Mercury wrote the song, as a tribute of respecting to John Lennon after his cruel death in 1980. This song has title: "Life Is Real (Song for Lennon)":

«Mercury wrote "Life Is Real" as a tribute to John Lennon, whose murder in 1980 had also previously prompted the band to perform his song "Imagine" on tour. Like Lennon's songs, "Life Is Real" features a sparse piano-based arrangement and a melancholy tone. It is also one of the few Queen songs whose lyrics were written before the music ("Killer Queen" being another). The title may be a reference to the lyric "love is real", from Lennon's 1970 song "Love", or the line "nothing is real", from The Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever".It begins with three bell-like piano notes, meant to recall the opening bells in Lennon's "(Just Like) Starting Over", and "Beautiful Boy". Also, the first two words, "Guilt stains..." are virtually identical interval-wise (though in a different key) to Lennon's first two notes in his song, "Mother".»;

h) John Lennon became member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 year. He was presented by Paul McCartney. Category: «Performer». The Beatles were inducted in 1988. Artifacts of the band in the museum:

"The impact of the Beatles has often been noted but cannot be overstated. The “Fab Four” from Liverpool, England, startled the ears and energized the lives of virtually all who heard them. Their arrival triggered the musical revolution of the Sixties, introducing a modern sound and viewpoint that parted ways with the world of the previous decade. In a career that lasted less than a decade, the Beatles changed the course of rock and roll and popular music. After launching the British Invasion of the United Stated and scoring 20 Number One hits, the Beatles went on to indulge their creative energies in the studio, layering sounds and crafting songs in a way that was experimental yet still accessible. This retreat from the ceaseless mayhem of pop celebrity yielded such musically expansive and lyrically sophisticated albums as Rubber Soul (1965) and Revolver (1966). The group retired from touring in August 1966, and 10 months later, they released
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, an album that has almost universally been cited as the creative apotheosis of rock and roll, a watershed event in which rock became “serious art” without losing its sense of humor. The group continued to break new ground with the
White Album and Abbey Road before calling it quits in 1970. All of the band members went on to successful solo careers.
";


i) John Lennon got the Grammy Award for Album of the Year: «Double Fantasy» (1981):

The album climbed to No. 1 and took home Album Of The Year honors at the 24th GRAMMY Awards on the strength of the Top 10 hits "(Just Like) Starting Over", "Woman" and "Watching The Wheels".»;

The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely viewed televised ceremony. It is the music equivalent to the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Awards for stage performances, and the Academy Awards for motion pictures.";


j) In honor of John Lennon was named the international airport (Liverpool John Lennon Airport):

Methods to implement tasks of the International Day permanently:

Need to create mechanism for celebration the new date every day: www.un.org/en/events/culturaldiversityday (something like the mechanism with title: «Do One Thing For Diversity and Inclusion»):

1) The most relevant method to implement the important tasks of the new International Day - placing of page with main content of this event in any location, where the British Council implements the its main tasks via the 110 of countries (popularization of national culture in the educational context). Because John Lennon from the UK (The Beatles);

2) Great number of members from the Group of Friends of the UNAOC, can easy make almost the same (when use best way to create this bridge).


How to be original:

Comparision with the Date 2 October (International Day of Non-Violence) needs in the special attention.

Because Lennon used ideas of Mahatma Gandhi with elements of innovation *. Musician placed these ideas in his songs (gave for people via art and culture). If compare, does not exist big possibility to find music and cinema, other values of the world culture and not only them - in the relation of Mahatma Gandhi. But all of this has the great relation to the leader of The Beatles.

Almost in every point of the Earth is contained fantastic number of fans of John Lennon and the band of all times and peoples. They can provide safety of the planet, if the new International Day in honor them idol will become reality. Also, the concept of the project is directed to make number of fans in several times more (note).

Imagine there is no heaven
It is easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there is no countries

Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

But I am not the only one
I hope someday you will 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 am a dreamer
But I am not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one.
