“Not long after John died, I was downtown in a pretty bad neighborhood. I saw the words to “Imagine” written out on a wall. It was really powerful to see the lyrics written so simply, in such a rundown place. It’s hard to sum up why John means so much to so many people. Mainly I think John represented everyone’s desire to better themselves and the importance of that struggle. Sometimes he fell short of the goals he set. But John Lennon always strived to do better, to be better, and encouraged people to imagine a better world.” -Bob Gruen
