Wow it has been thirty years since John Lennon was shot outside of the Dakota Apartments in New York.
How time has flown. At the time I was living in a house in McMahons Point Sydney. I was so grief stricken at the time I remember well nearly all Radio Stations playing Lennon songs around the clock.
Where we you on this historic day in 1980?
I was just barely born in March of that same year, so I doubt I understood or even knew who John Lennon was considering I was a baby. However, from what I do know of him, I know he was a great and influential man. A man that will probably be forever missed by our American culture, nonetheless.
I was 12 years old, living in the same state I'm presently living in. It was a tragic event and I remember it, but at the time, I was still living my childhood out, entering into teenage years. Other things on my mind.
I was 23 I felt just as old and as wise as I do now if you get my drift.
I had just turned 24 so I definitely know what you mean
I was in my bedroom playing a board game with a friend. It came on the radio and I thought it was a joke for some reason.
I was working in a doctor's office. One of our local EMTs came in the office and told us. You could just see the shock on his face. Turns out he and I were the only ones that really cared. It's still hard to think about.
it was a sad, tragic night 30 years ago.. it's still hard.

Truly one of th egreatest legends of all time, would have made a huge impact today if he was still alive. Huge fan of both his music, his writing and his theories.
I was 9 months old when John Lennon was shot and didn't have a clue at that time who he was. But for as long as I can remember I always loved his music. I have quite a few CDs. He is my favorite Beatle!!! I wish he would have been around longer but unfortunatly I can't change the past. I think his spirit lives on in all of us!!!!!
I was at a record store on campus. They put a moratorium on all John Lennon music for several days. The owners felt that if you did not buy it while he was alive and appreciate him, you would not buy it from them when he died. The owners felt it was a media circus locally and did not want to mar his memory with materialism. I think the moratorium was for a week.

“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.” ― John Lennon

The supposed scientific justification behind humanism has been proven invalid and its promises vain. Nevertheless, humanists have not abandoned their philosophy, but rather, in fact, have tried to spread it throughout the world through methods of mass propaganda. Especially in the post-war period...

If you could erase any one murder from history, which would it be and why?I would have to choose John Lennon because even though The Beatles were before my time, I love every one of their records, and I may be wrong, but I feel that if John Lennon’s life was not taken prematurely, The Beatles may...
