Today marks the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s tragic passing. My parents very clearly remember where they were when he was shot. John Lennon was an icon and recognized the world over. His death made an impact on everyone, no matter whether they liked him or not.
We all know his songs, we all know his face. The world would not be what it is today without him. I find it incredible that small children know the worlds to many Beatles songs — what does that tell you about him and the legacy he has left? It’s been said that you never really die if there are living people you have affected. I think in John’s case, then, he will live forever.
A world without John Lennon — can you Imagine?
Rest in peace, John.
