Do you remember where you were 25 years ago today?  December 8, 1980, NYC, in front of the Dakota apartment building, John Lennon was shot and killed.

I remember that I was in our family room, sitting in my dad’s recliner.  He had already gone to bed.  I can’t remember which channel I was watching, but I remember crying and crying – I was only 13.

I have 2 John Lennon posters in my classroom with words “All you need is love” next to them. During my brothers senior year, we painted the words to “Imagine” on his car – we stayed up late to finish.

On this day, I proudly proclaim that I am a dreamer.  Won’t all you dreamers out there join me and share your dreams, memories, and show the world that I am not the only one.
