December 8th John Lennon

John Lennon remembrance

December 8th I will always remember where I was on this day.

The shot heard around the earth.  Where were you?  John Lennon assassinated.  My Kennedy?  You bet. 

John Lennon as the leader of my musical generation visualized peace; wrote ‘Imagine’, gave us a chance to see the world as something we could change and make a better place for everyone.

A non-violent man lost to violence.

I still need to dream and believe in the John Lennon perspective of the world.

My value of life-far reaching, my ideal that we can be non-violent and bring people together is ever present. 

“You may say I’m a dreamer,

but I’m not the only one,

I hope someday you’ll join us

and the world will live as one.”

I was in Islamorada in the Florida Keys in a duo with Lenore Troia called 'Side By Side', performing in a resort lounge at night and enjoying 80 degree days, tourqouise water and believing a successful musical career was just around the corner.  John Lennon's death completely undid us.
