Well today, exactly 33 years ago we lost an icon, in John Lennon as I carefully listen to imagine as I write this article. I recall the exact place, time, and what l was even wearing that day. When I heard it on the television news cast, tears came to my eye's.
I was never really a "Beatles Fan," but l enjoyed their music, but John was the man in that band I admired, for his writing abilities, how he planted words, and painted a story, which had meaning, and most of all; reasons for him sharing his lyrics, with us the audience.
Sometimes life comes to a sudden end, without any real logical sense, behind the reasons for why it happened. We just never know our time, words will not bring John back and it just provides all of us, who knew, or followed John, with sweet memories that will never die, along with a smile.
All I recall was the world was in shock, over the tragic, unforeseen circumstances. Took a matter of seconds to send the whole world into shock till this day, 33 years later, we still show our grief to a legend, that made us all, dream about what a peaceful world would be like, with No wars, imagine!
John and Yoko Ono held a strong belief in their political views on the "Vietnam War," that was going on at the time. John and Yoko; where at their closes sharing their feelings that meant so much to each other. The true meaning of giving back at a level, very few ever think about doing. John and Yoko dedicated their beliefs, to a meaningful way of saving lives.
I have two close friends that were born on this day December 8th, so l get to understand life and death. I did call one of them and wished them a happy birthday. So if John was alive he would end this article with words along these's lines. Enjoy each, and every breath you take, and the moments you have to enjoy them.
33 Years Ago, December 8th, John Lennon!
