I have to agree with "Gern." John Lennon's death is something that still leaves a sadness in my heart when I think of it. I was 12 years old when he died on. . . was it Dec. 10, 1980? . . . and I cried the entire day.
I recently returned to the East Coast from living in Indiana for about a year and went to New York City. One of the first places I went to was Central Park to see the John Lennon memorial - there was a fresh yellow rose set on the memorial - a beautiful indicator that his memory is very fresh in the minds of people.
John Lennon was a wonderful human being. . . struggling like the rest of us but with the passion, talent and drive to express it to the entire world. . .
