I was helping a student yesterday with an assignment in English class in which she had to choose four poetic songs and analyze them for meaning and structure, and one of the songs she chose was John Lennon's Imagine. It couldn't have come at a more appropriate time. During my ride home a short while after working with the student, I heard of the death of police officer Brian Moore.
The news saddened me. A promising young life, killed for no reason in this terrible new problem we seem to be faced with these days. I took to my blog Rants last night to address the issue in my own way, and still, I am sad. I can't help but marvel about Lennon's utopia...Imagine all the people, living life in peace...if only!
