Imagine: 30 Years Without John Lennon

The anniversary of the Beatle’s death should be a time to remember his life.

It’s all too tempting for those us old enough to recall Dec. 8, 1980 to dwell Wednesday on where we were and how we felt when slammed by the news that John Lennon had been gunned down outside his Manhattan home. The sadness, if not the full brunt of the shock, lingers for many all these years later.

But imagine spending part of the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s death reflecting on other memories:

Think about the first time you heard a Beatles song.

Think about the first time you sang or played one with friends or family.Think about the last time you listened to a favorite Beatles or Lennon tune with a loved one, perhaps someone too young to recall the day the man – but not the music – died.

Take a cue from Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, who has dedicated much of the last three decades to keeping his legacy of peace and song alive.
