The Death of a Great Man · 11:11pm
Today was the day in 1980 that ex-Beatle John Lennon was shot to death outside his home in New York.
John was a big advocate for peace in his later years, particularly while the U.S. was involved in the Vietnam War. But a lot of people seem all too quick to remember that he was one of the two Beatles to begin experimenting with LSD and used it more often then others. Need I remind you that John Lennon like all human beings was flawed. I'm not saying that excuses what he did, but at the least he eventually did confess to what he was doing. And some of his songs from his time with The Beatles reflected how he felt, at times he felt like he was worthless and meant nothing to the world.
John probably never knew how wrong he was.
R.I.P John, I hope and you George are happy up there in that great rock and roll concert in the sky.
