All Those Years Ago

To the left is a picture of John Lennon signing an autograph for Mark David Chapman. This was taken just a few short hours before Chapman decided to take it upon himself to rid the world of one of the leading advocators for peace, and one hell of a musician.

25 years later Lennon’s spirit remains with us and Chapman still sits in his jail cell. In a recent interview with Chapman on NBC’s Dateline, he was asked about his third denial for parole. Chapman is quoted as saying he deserved exactly what he got, “because of the pain and suffering I've caused. I deserve nothing.”

Claims of mental illness or not, Mr. Chapman, you didn't get what you deserve. "Nothing" is more than you should ever expect. Historical mythology tells us that Pandora managed to slam shut her infamous box before hope flew out. Twenty-five years ago, you reopened the box and let that escape as well.

We still miss you John.
