December 8 1980 – The Day My World Stood Still: The Killing Of John Lennon 1

We were tired as every morning when we had to go to school. Together with my brother I sat at the breakfast table when my grandmother turned on the radio. I can’t even remember if it was a snowy day, but because I remember that my brother and me always were hoping for the news that the school busses couldn’t reach the hill top where we lived those days because of the snow, I guess it was one of this cold, snowy days. This would have mend a day off.

I still see the display of the old wooden radio in front of me. I remember that I put my bread back on the plate and stared at my brother in disbelieve after the words of the newscaster:


Happy Birthday John! 1

Today is John Lennon’s birthday and as he’s a hero for me I’m moved to see that search giant Google tributes him on their homepage with this video. The video consists a doodle of John Lennon and a phrase of Imagine.

I often imagined what he could had brought us in the last 30 years if he wasn’t taken away from us.

Happy Birthday John! Give Peace A Chance :-)
