Today is, or would have been John Lennon’s 81st birthday. I remember hearing about his death and how my sister and I cried together. I am still sad and a bit angry about this. Why! He was a good man and a brilliant musician. I remember listening to The Beatles on family trips in the car when my sister and I were little children in the backseat. Their music has been with me every day of my life and I consider that a real privilege. They were so far ahead of their time!
God bless you, Mr. Lennon 🇬🇧

I love John Lennon songs and the Beatles. It was a tragedy. I was young but I even remember that day that he was tragically killed.
I was fresh out of high schoool, still makes me angry!
I was 16 when he died. Such a tragedy is right! What is your favorite song of his?
Oh cripes, there are too many to mention, Shelley. I was just thinking about him a few minutes ag and remembered a family trip we took in the mid or late 60s.
Sister and I in the backseat while mom and dad were listening to The Beatles!
That was the trip my head was rolled up in the window. Damn power windows! 😂
That means you have great memories! Ouch – those power windows were scary back then!! Glad you survived.
I remember thinking that there were so many beautiful songs that would never be written after he was killed.
It’s a crime against him and those who love Beatles music. Sickening.
Every life is precious, but robbing the world of a talent like this was especially despicable.
I totally agree, Anneli. 🤬
Yes..his 81st birthday..too bad he was killed so young.
We remembered this today in our home too. So many times, we’ve wondered…what if? What if he had lived? He was definitely one of a kind.
I’m glad you remember him too. It was so senseless…
I fully agree John.
