To Be Or Not To BeIt was grade 12 - we were on our way to see Shakespeare's Hamlet for a school trip (actually Lennon was shot and died the night before) - but my best friend was the biggest John Lennon fan I had ever known - he idolized him, he was his hero. I don't think we had talked much at all the night before, and I knew seeing him for our school trip would be really awkward.
I didn't think he would come to the trip - but he said, he had to go on with his life. It was quite a sombre play - matched our sombre mood.
Years later someone gave me a tribute shirt made by a local artists. I even had a young woman offer to pay me $100 to have my T-Shirt. I turned her down of course - I still have that shirt.
I always wonder what would have happened had he not been shot ...
do you think peace would have stood a chance?
