RIP John Lennon. The list of sudden and unexpected celebrity deaths is long—Princess Di, Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many more. Which one affected you the most on an emotional level?
I would have to say that the unexpected death of John Lennon has affected me the most. Though I was not even born when he died, the idea that he really didn't deserve to die, and that something so tragic could happen to someone who had so much ahead for them, is tragic for me. He was not perfect, and I would not try to portray him that way. He just did so much to try and change the world, through his music and through his strong beliefs, that it still leaves me in awe. I wonder what more he could have done had his life not been ended so tragically. To think that years of brilliance have been lost makes me sad. Either way, today I honor him and remember him as someone who still continues to be a source of inspiration to me. RIP, John. <3.
