John Winston Ono Lennon October 9, 1940-December 8, 1980
Happy 70th birthday, John Winston Ono Lennon. Yes, it's October 9th. You would have been 70 years old today. It's been so long since your murder but I remember it like it was yesterday. You are truly missed. Rest in peace. That's what you always pleaded for. Peace. We all do. I wish we could just stop fighting. Impossible? Just IMAGINE. Everyone. It's easy if you try. No hell below us. Above us only sky. You may say John was a dreamer, but he wasn't the only one. And we're all the better for it.
To my readers, thanks for being here once again. I really appreciate every one of you. There are two especially sad dates for me each year. Today, John Lennon's birthday, and that hideous Monday night, December 8th when the world found out that John was gone. I recoiled when I heard Howard Cosell read the press release live on Monday Night Football. Tears were followed by anger. His passing didn't really sink in for a couple days. In many ways, it still hasn't. I invite you to click on this post's title for a wonderful pictorial with music. Please put your sound on and as always, BE WELL. Do it for John. Peace. What else is more important?
