John Denver was a very complex man. He had his share of problems. He had two failed marriages. He got charged for drink driving twice and he also admitted in 1974 that he smoked marijuana.. But all in all he was a wonderful person.Some of you may say why put that in.Well It was all true.The only thing that John really told people by coming out and telling the world the truth is that he was HUMAN , Like the rest of us.He had all the trimmings of a Rich person.But the thing I noticed about John was maybe he was rich & famous but he never acted any different to you or me.He aways had time for everyone he met.It did not matter the color race or creed.We were all one big family according to John.All of us are sister's & brother's. And John was someone who tried with all his might to make the world a Safer & Better place to live. I think if everyone was more like John, we could make the world a better place. John would want each and every person to try their hardest to change things not only for our generation but for all future generation's.I know all of you who are reading this will agree with me and do your hardest to try and make the world a better place .Do not let any one put you down for trying. Hold your heads high.Just like John did.
Not only was he a very popular singer song writer he was also a poet, humanitarian , environmentalist , Actor & an all round decent man.
