Today is the 40th anniversary of John Lennon’s death. It's hard to believe that so much time has passed and how much has happened.
I was 24 and remember vividly the cold December day that it happened. It sent shock waves through my family.
It was 1980 and as I walked through my neighborhood, there was a large poster hung on a front porch, trimmed with Christmas lights, sharing John’s message “Give Peace a Chance”.
