I can’t disagree with this woman more. Madalyn asked me when she was 5 how John died. I told her the truth. How could I not? Should I have ignored her question? Lied? Lying changes nothing. It happened and it was awful and there’s no fixing it, or sanitizing it, or tap-dancing around it. Maybe when she grows up she will think of how she felt when she found out what happened to John, and maybe she’ll want to do something about it so no other kids ever have to feel the way she did. Or the way Sean Lennon must have when he heard his daddy was dead.
