Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now...

John Lennon ~ We Still Remember

Dec. 8, 1980.  A date every Beatles fan, let alone any music fan, over 40 remembers.  The news that John Lennon had been shot and killed in New York City seemed both shocking and surreal.  Like waking from a nightmare only to realize... we were not dreaming.  It was all too real.  An Englishman in New York, a true artist, husband and father had been shot several times in the back by a deranged human insect. It was one of those sorrowful events that most can recall where they were and what they were doing when they found out.  It's hard to believe that 30 years have passed - harder still to comprehend that it happened to John, his family... and to us all.  We still remember...

The following video footage was shot by talented videographer, Brian Goddard, who was diving with us during our recent diving adventure to Peter's Dive Resort, Sogod Bay, South Leyte Island, Philippines. This area features encounters with Whale Sharks that come to feed at this time of year. I have also linked some of his other footage from Sogod Bay.
