I don’t remember when John Lennon was shot, which is very weird because my parents were HUGE Beatles fans. They raised me knowing all the albums, songs, and goings on…

But I remember becoming aware of John Lennon’s death later on. I was devastated!

These things really do affect children. I think of my high school daughter and remember a time when I was taught as a child to respect our President. (Probably why this shooting hurt me so!) but I find it very very difficult to teach her that right now. I try to stick to issues and encourage her to have her own perspective.

Thanks for reading and commenting. It is good to share our stories.
