Thirty Years Ago

Thirty years ago the world was robbed of incredible songwriter and musician when John Lennon was shot. We will never here the songs he would have written in the last 30 years. I might be biased but his solo work was the best from the former Beatles. He was the key songwriter with the Beatles along with Paul McCartney.

Perhaps it is selfish to complain of the music lost. Besides music, Yoko Ono was a robbed of her husband. Julian and Sean lost a father. The world lost a person who had the ways and means to change it. How, would the world have been different if John hadn't been shot.

Sadly we can't bring John Lennon back, we can't bring back the last 30 years. We can listen to the music of the Beatles and John's solo works. We can appreciate him for the musician he was. Yoko can remember him as the husband he was. Julian and Sean can remember him as the father he was. We can listen and the world will keep on spinning.
