#9 Dream

Feeling a little melancholy tonight as I mourn on the death anniversary of a great musician. John Winston Lennon was shot 4 times on his back and shoulder on this day in 1980. As the bullets burst his aorta, the dreams of love and peace of many were broken. It is doubtful that the world would become more peaceful and that there would be less war if he had lived, but we certainly have been deprived of greater works and ingenuity from this man.

As for the one who robbed us of these, Mark Chapman, he remains in the state prision in New York and has been repeatedly denied of parole (5 times up to 2008). It is feared that his life would be in danger, if freedom is returned to him. Life is an irony.
