John Lennon Died Or Was ...

John Lennon died or was shot down.  On December 1991, I do not know the actual day, or the name of the white man that shot him.  I think is was around the 6th of December, for I had been thinking about my Grandmom, being gone for 11 years, I was in my bedroom reading, thinking how I missed my best Friend, it was 11 years to the day, my Grandmother went into a comma, and passed on the 12 th of December. 

since I was 15, christmas has never been the same for me.  she passed on in 1980, when I was 15 years old.  She was so fun, and funny and short.  ahhhh.. a fond memory.

It was also the first time I heard the name of John Lennon's wife.  Oko ono, sorry for the spelling..

1980 was the year John died. Not 1991

I remember it, too. It was one of those, "Please tell me this is a joke, I'm waiting for the punch line" moments on par with the Challenger disaster(*saw* that one in high school--it was one of the few times they ran broadcast events live). I heard about it on the radio, and that was my first reaction. Mind you, I was all of 11 years old at the time, and had been a big Beatles fan and post-Beatles fan(and I still am). I guess for me it was like what people must have felt like when they heard JFK was assassinated.

December 8th, 1980. Shot by Mark David Chapman, in NYC outside his hotel the Dakota
