Imagine

Today, December 8, is the anniversary of the death of John Lennon. He was shot and killed by a madman outside of his home in New York in 1980. He was 40 years old.

John Lennon was a very complex man. He was filled with jealousy, loathing, and self-pity. At times, he was horribly cruel verbally and psychologically to many people, including those close to him. He was also physically violent at times, and at least once, almost killed a man. Yet there was another side of him, the dreamer, singer, song writer, poet, author, and radical artist who championed the causes of peace and love. It is this side of him that I honor today.
