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...
