Weekend self-care open thread—In memoriam, John Lennon

Weekend self-care open thread—In memoriam, John Lennon

Dec. 8, 1980. We were getting ready for school when the news broke: John Lennon had been assassinated in front of the Dakota.

Of course, fans around the world mourned. But for us New Yorkers, it was gutting that this happened in our city, in the city John had made his home. My brother, who basically learned English by listening to the Beatles, was a wreck for a week.

On this, the 38th anniversary of his murder, we look back at some of his music, both with the Beatles and after.

Feel free to post your favorites.

As always, take care of yourselves and those around you.
