Sad Anniversary; War Isn’t Over

8 Dec

Can you believe it’s the thirtieth anniversary of John Lennon’s death?  It was one of those moments you remember where you were when you heard it. 

I heard it on the radio before school; probably on Terry Wogan because my Mum liked him.  I met a friend on the way to school and it was all we talked about; he was a massive Beatles fan.  We were having a bad winter and the snow was the thickest I’ve seen it until January just gone.

Where were you when you heard the news?

    I too heard it on the radio when I came down to get ready for school. It was either ‘Merseyside’ or ‘City’ (depending on which one Billy Butler was working with at the time). ‘Imagine’ was playing and then came the news! Just so surreal.

    Tilly,
    I was living in Manhattan. In Gramercy Park not all that far from where he was killed. Me and my friends were heartbroken. We all went to the candle vigile in Central Park. Bad memories.

      Bad memories but a special time you’ll always remember.

    I was in Chicago at the time and could not believe it. It’s still a shock to know that Mark Chapman flew from Hawaii to do this horrible deed.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
