I'd like to express the same feeling by changing some words to cry the death of John W. Lennon:

He was a friend of mine, he was a friend of mine
His killing had no purpose, no reason or rhyme
Oh, he was a friend of mine

He was in New York town, he was in New York town
In Dakota archway a gunner shot him down
Oh, he died in New York town

He never knew my name, he never knew my name
Though I never met him I knew him just the same
Oh, he was a friend of mine

Leader of the Beatles for such a precious time
Oh, he was a friend of mine


That's lovely, Andrés.

That's lovely, Andrés.

Thanks Kelley.

I changed very few words just related to facts, because the spirit of the song express the same feeling.

This is a script I wrote for a recent challenge. We had to take an event from history and write a story set as if that event had never happened

Thank you for the kind words, guys. Once the theme of the challenge was revealed I knew it was gonna be based around John surviving in some way. Then the ending came to me straight away (the 2 events are pretty much the biggest in NYC history, certainly 9/11 is). I sorta cheated a bit by not actually showing John with these 1980's/90's world leaders as I couldn't be bothered lol plus there was a 15 page max restriction.

So I got around it by just showing the middle part of John's 'new' life. A couple of reviewers mentioned this on Simply Scripts but I will reveal it when the writers are revealed for all the scripts - we do it anon and part of the fun is guessing who wrote what but I think its redundant doing that now lol
