    imagine

    Hi,

    1. "Imagine all the people
    Living for today"

    Q1. What does 'for' mean? Any difference in meaning if it's rewritten as
    "imagine all the people living today" ?


    2."Nothing to kill or die for"

    Q2. What does 'for' mean? Does 'for' mean some reasons to kill or some reasons to die.
    Any difference in meaning if it's rewritten as 'nothing to kill or die'?


    3. "No need for greed or hunger"

    Q3. Hunger for what? Possessions?


    4. "A brotherhood of man"

    Q4. What is a brotherhood of mankind? Knowing how to share good things?


    Thanks
