Imagine Happiness

There's a wonderful story that has been floating around the Internet for several years attributed to John Lennon as a young student in grade school. 

However, it seems that in reality the events of the tale never actually took place, and it's fabrication is now widely considered to be one of the many storied "Internet Fables."

Regardless, fact or fiction it's still a wonderful story, and as a fan of both fables and the late John Lennon, I certainly don't mind the somewhat hazy authenticity of the tale.  I would also like to think that John, himself, would have certainly agreed with it's message.  The story goes that during an interview, while discussing the supposed "important things in life," John offered the following: 

"Well, when I was 5 years old boy, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down ‘happy.’  They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life."  -And John we couldn't agree more.
