And a message from Yoko Ono:

Dear Friends,

Today, October 9th, I will relight IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in Iceland in memory of my late husband John Lennon.

Please ask all your friends to join us by Tweeting your wishes to IMAGINE PEACE TOWER.

You can do this by coming to where you can also watch the lighting live with us at 8pm in Reykjavík = 9pm in UK = 4pm in NY= 1pm in LA = 5am in Japan.

Tell all your friends.
Spread the word!

Let’s Tweet a million wishes for Peace for John’s birthday!

I hope the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER will give light to the strong wishes of World Peace from all corners of the planet and give encouragement, inspiration and a sense of solidarity in a world now filled with fear and confusion. Let us come together to realise a peaceful world.


If you are in New York City tonight, you can attend a free screening in Central Park of LennoNYC, a documentary about the years John spent living there. Details about the event can be found here.

    Out of the vicious air raid attacks on London, was born John Lennon 70 years ago today, to re-kindle Love single-handedly throughout the worlds’ generations, during and after his short life.

    I found Yoko Ono recent comments about the Beatles breakup true to form. If a band want’s to break up they will. Same for divorce.

      I have never seen the cries of “Yoko broke up the Beatles” as anything other than racism and sexism, personally.
