"Uh, uh, uh, here today..”
December 8, 1980 (Taken on the same day as his murder)
We all know what today is. The 33rd anniversary of when the world lost a legend. The day music died, as some will say. We shouldn’t feel sadness today. We should be happy that the world got the privilege of having a remarkable man step foot onto this earth. He wasn’t a saint, even though millions treated him as if he were.
He wasn’t always a loving and devoted husband and father, but he tried making up for it all. But one thing he was, was a brilliant, greatly talented man who not only brought us music by The Beatles, but music by him.
We should celebrate with listening to his songs. His songs of peace and all that. Keep his dream alive that we shall live in peace one day.
The photo above is my little memorial for him. He will always be in my heart and in the heart of thousands of others that are keeping his music, his legacy, alive. Let’s keep doing that.
Remembering this man for not only his talent and want for peace but his flaws, his humour, his love, his smile and everything he was: good and Bad.
There is no way John Lennon was a perfect person but he was true to himself and never pretended to be something he wasn’t. I don’t think even John himself knew how much of an impact he would have on the world, despite his cocky attitude I don’t think he thought he’d be remembered. But he was. And he will never be forgotten.
"I’m Not Afraid Of Death" "…..I Think It’s Like Getting Out Of One Car And Into Another."
We don’t need to point out that John had flaws. None of us are perfect people. We all have many, many flaws. But few of us will ever have the kind of impact on the world that John Lennon had. I love him so much and am so thankful for the fact that he existed. Who would any of us be without his music?
