6. Feels like yesterday to me

I was a freshly-minted teenager around that time. While I didn't know much about John Lennon or the Fab Four, I really enjoyed playing the Beatles records (early years mop-top stuff) that I discovered in my parents' vinyl collection.

The weight of John's death hit me pretty hard the moment I saw his face front and center on the stacks and stacks of newspapers at my route's drop point... and as I delivered each paper to every doorstep that day.

"A Day In The Life" has the ability to evoke that "I remember where I was when..." feeling in all of us. Just thought I would share mine.

Thank you for posting this.

Thanks, John...!
