New website created to spread the Word of the Beatles
by Julian McKenzie, Beatles News Reporter
More than any other rock 'n' roll band ever, The Beatles stood for love and peace, and making this world a better place. They professed that in their public and private lives, and in the songs they wrote and performed. In these days of down-turning economies, political upheaval and world-wide terrorist attacks, it sometimes seems difficult to remember the lessons of peace and love that the Beatles tried to teach us.
Today, November 27, 2008, Thanksgiving Day in the United States, Dave Haber, creator of the Internet Beatles Album, one of the longest running and most popular websites about the Beatles, announces a new website called Fixing A Hole.org. The purpose of this commercial-free site is to remind Beatles fans that the world doesn't have to be as bad as it seems, and by spreading peace and love, we can all come together to make this world a better place.
Fixing A Hole.org will contain essays written by celebrities and fans, talking about how the Beatles affected their lives for the better and how the Beatles changed the world. It will also let readers contribute comments to the essays, sharing their own uplifting Beatles experiences, creating a new support community for world's family of Beatles fans.
Jude Kessler, author of the John Lennon biography Shoulda Been There, will be a frequent contributer to Fixing A Hole.org. She said, "John Lennon once suggested that we 'put a sign of Peace in the window, and even if you don't know what it means...' it will say to the world that you are not on the side of anger and confusion and hatred, but on the side of calm and love. In this world where so many are divided about so much, we hope that Fixing A Hole.org will be our sign of Peace in the window. We hope that people will come here to get away from conflict, debate, sensationalism, and dissention to read good news stories, essays of inspiration, poems about the spirit, quotes that make us smile...and each one will have its roots in and will grow out of the influence of The Beatles."
The site's creator Dave Haber says, "Obviously, when someone creates a website, they hope it will be visited by lots of people. But if only one person reads one essay on Fixing A Hole.org and it makes them feel better and helps them to make the world better, then I've done my job."
All through the 60's, the Beatles kept telling us that the Word would set us free...and the Word was love. It was true then, and it is still true today. And in that spirit of love, Fixing A Hole.org was created.
Fixing A Hole.org is available online now.
