“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.” John Lennon

How many of you remember where you were when John was killed and how many of you take time to think about your own life?

The Beatles concept of revolution had many meanings, or polysemous vinyl records take 33 1/3 revolutions to spin per minute. Imagine this, it’s been 33 years since John was shot and killed on the night of December 8 1980. John and Yoko were arriving at their NYC Dakota apartment and he was shot and killed.
