Sunday was the 33rd anniversary of the death of John Lennon in a senseless act of violence outside his New York apartment.
Lennon would no doubt be pleased with this story of generosity out of Havana, Cuba. You may recall 13 years ago a statue John Lennon was erected in a park there. Thieves kept stealing with Lennon's trademark round glasses. That's when 82 year old Juan Gonzalez stepped in.
For the last 13 years, four days a week, he shows up at the statue at 6am for a 12-hour shift, wearing a government security guard's uniform and cap. When tourists visit the statue, he places the glasses on Lennon's nose and waits for people to take pictures. When they're done, he removes them and waits for the next photo opp. Gonzalez is now 95 years old.
Here's Lennon's classic "Woman" from his final original album, from iHeartRadio:
