What famous person would you have dinner with and why?

Updated on January 4, 2016

If I could select one famous person to have dinner with it would have to be the late John Lennon, lead singer of The Beatles. I have always had a passion for people who take the most negative circumstances and create something positive out of it.

"Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one."

John will forever be known to many for his beautiful anti-war ballad, "Imagine" with The Beatles, but I will forever remember the monumental impact he had on humanity, his role to persuade the American people to protest the Vietnam War and his quest for world peace.

"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it."

Taking his voice from the center stage and putting it forward to help humanity, John used his iconic music status to deliver the message of peace, love and hope when violence, hate and despair were dominating our world.

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

Through my eyes, John Lennon is a true hero. John taught me to stand up for what I believe in, to be a voice for the voiceless, always have hope for a better tomorrow and we can change the world one step at a time. Through his message, I believe in the unimaginable.

"If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal."

Having the opportunity to sit down to dinner with one of the leading academic activists, John Lennon, would be priceless. I would have so many questions to ask; if he would vote for Donald Trump, if he believes Bill and Hillary would be an asset in the White House, his view on the terrorist attacks plaguing our great nation and what he would do to end terrorism.

"Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it."

Going to dinner with John Lennon would be one of the most memorable events in my life.
