John Lennon's utopian vision in his song "Imagine" of a world without heaven, hell, countries, religion, possessions, greed, hunger and anything to kill or die for may not have come to fruition, but the legacy and spirit of his humanistic optimism continues 30 years after he was gunned down outside of his New York City apartment.

"Imagine all the people..."

You didn't have to imagine all the people descending on Strawberry Fields in Central Park on Wednesday, December 8th, 2010.  That date marks the 30th anniversary of that terrible day when one of our greatest artists was taken from us.  Though some understandably still focused on the tragedy of it, many more joined together in peaceful union with one another and celebrated the life and art of a true visionary.

John Lennon, you will be forever missed...
