For Rich and for Poor

Thirty years ago tonight the world heard the news that John Lennon was murdered in New York City.  

There’s little else that I can add that hasn’t already been said.  Lennon was a complicated man, but his songs—as a Beatle and as a solo artist—endure.  And the message to the best of those songs are very simple: enjoy each day, spread love, and never take anything for granted.  Dismiss it as cheese, but it’s true.  If all of us lived by those principals, the world would be a better place.
