About the Author
Dylan Sydney was born about a week after John Lennon was killed, give or take. He remembered his mother saying it was on the news still just after he arrived. Many other significant events happened that year. Regan was sworn in soon later as President of the United States. A baby girl received a baboon heart, and then died shortly after. The Berlin wall finally fell. A space shuttle burst into flames while America watched. Michael Jackson’s hair set on fire during a commercial shoot. He was popular at the time. Music had changed its sound as did hair and clothing trends too. Prince Charles and Princess Dianna’s wedding, and the Oliver North’s trial happened as well. In conclusion, the author saw people cry. Later on, another ship would find its way into nothingness. An iconic patch was broadcasted, before gay was wrong and oppressive behavior was on the move. Neither right, nor wrong by definition were moral. Colors seemed to matter, as humans were able to love each other, yet it was against law and against primitive standards.
