    Default 25th Anniversary of John Lennon's Death

    Twenty-five years ago today John Lennon was taken away from us, but the assassin couldn't destroy Lennon's message of non-violence. If I remember correctly, John Lennon had donated money to the NYPD for bullet-proof vests (which made the way he died so ironic). I'll never forget where I was that night when Howard Cosell announced on Monday Night Football that John was shot & being taken in an ambulance to the hospital but was "dead on arrival..."

    I never was much of a Lennon fan myself, after the Beatles I thought he went horribly downhill musically...but eh, that's just me I guess.

    True. :-)

    Yes WT, the FBI targeted a lot of political activists over the years, including MLK. Since this is a Memorial thread, here's how people are remembering John today.
