What I cherish is that, apart from the venomous period, I know that I sat there and we wrote ‘Love Me Do’. And I sat there and we wrote ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’, and we screwed around with the lyrics. I know he brought in ‘In My Life’, and he had the first verse and the rest of it wasn’t written. And I know he brought in ‘Norwegian Wood’ and we developed the idea of setting the place on fire. I remember sitting there doing ‘Help!’, and then I’d come in with “When I was younger, so much younger than today”, and he’d have the main melody, and I’d do the counter melody. I can remember where we were, how it was and just magic moments where I’d be writing, “It’s getting better all the time,” and John would be sitting there – “It can’t get much worse.” Those moments. That’s what I cherish. No one can take it away from me.

Binti Jua, a western lowland gorilla female in the Brookfield Zoo, Illinois is most well known for an incident on August 16, 1996, when she was 8 years old. A three-year old boy climbed the wall around her enclosure and fell 18 ft onto concrete below, unconscious with a broken hand and vicious gash on his face. Spectators screamed, certain the gorilla would harm the child. Binti picked up the child, gave him a few pats and carried him 59 ft to an access entrance so zoo personnel could retrieve him.
Exactly 33 years ago today this beautiful man left the world. John Lennon will never be forgotten. His music, his words, his lyrics impacted so many people around the world. He is loved and remembered everyday. It was unfair the way he left us, a person like John didn’t deserve something like that at all. A man who preached about love and peace is the one who gets shot down….its sad. His body may not be here anymore but his spirit and his music will forever be alive, and right now its as alive as it has ever been. Johnny, we miss you. You’re forever in our hearts ♥
