sad day..........


Today, December 8, 2005, marks the 25th anniversary of the death of a great man...Mr. John Lennon.

This world suffered a tremendous loss that day. Many of us have felt it very deeply since then.

Even at the tender age of only five, it had a huge impact on me. This was the first time I ever saw my Dad cry...something I will never forget.

After hearing the news, my dad came home and sat me down on the floor to tell me that he had been shot. Tough stuff for a kid to take in. I knew this man as the voice of one of my favorite songs at the time, which was Yellow Submarine. So, Dad and I sat there on the floor, and listened to Beatles albums crying together. It will be a sad day forever.
