Music fans remember Lennon 25 years on

John Lennon fans tried to imagine what might have been.

On the 25th anniversary of his murder, fans brought flowers, candles kls and their own bittersweet memories Thursday as they gathered in Central Park’s Strawberry Fields — and in the former &to=http://english.pravda.ru/world/2001/12/01/22620.html' target=_blank>Beatle’s hometown of Liverpool, England.

"With the country at war, his work and philosophy seem more poignant and more desperately needed than ever," said Kim Polson, 50.

Polson, who said she fell in love with the Beatles when she saw them on television at age 8, was an early morning visitor to Strawberry Fields, the section of Central Park opposite the Dakota apartment building where Lennon was gunned down Dec. 8, 1980. About 75 fans, some of them born after Lennon’s death, gathered on a cold morning, reports Detroit Free Press.

The scene was much the same in Lennon's hometown of Liverpool, England, where scores of fans from around the world remembered the ex-Beatle with white balloons, flowers and prayers. The balloons, carrying tributes to Lennon, were released into the sky.
