In memory of John Lennon

John Lennon (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980) was one of the greatest artists in history. His legacy as a songwriter is unmatched and yet his impact on humankind has had a much greater reach than just his music. Twenty five years ago today he was murdered. It's impossible for me to do justice to all of the good he brought to the world.
