30 years ago today

Can't believe it's been 30 years since John Lennon was shot.  I know I should remember where I was when I heard the news, but I don't.  But I was a freshman in college and I remember thinking, why?  Why on earth would anyone harm HIM of all people?  

I took this photo when John and I went to New York the summer before last, to celebrate our 25th anniversary.  I'm sure Strawberry Fields in Central Park is a crowded, solemn place this evening.   I'm very thankful for the way New York City remembered him.  Just to be there borders on a slight spiritual experience.  It's just peaceful there.  I'm sure John would have approved.
