REMEMBERING JOHN

Postby redrose » Wed Dec 08, 2010 11:48 am

Today sees the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's untimely death at the hands of psychopath Mark Chapman. It's a day for remembering him, and wondering too, what if? What would he have been like if he was still alive? Would he have wanted to become a 'dead hero' ? I have a feeling he would have been apalled, but who knows?

I also think that Yoko has done an amazing job in keeping his image alive and his dignity intact. Tonight I will light a candle for John, in rememberance.

I was driving around last night and was listening to John's last inerview. He seemed so alive to his music again. He sounded like it might be the start of another creative inspiring time in his life. Who knows, he and Paul might have actually gotten together. What we missed will never be known.
They played the Howard Cosell announcement from MNF. I was watching that game 30 years ago. It brought back cold chills. I had the same reaction then and now. A few tears and lots of sadness.
