Remembering John Lennon – 40 Years Later
Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have paid tribute to John Lennon on the 40th anniversary of his death — December 8th, 1980.
As she has done for many years, Yoko posted the same message — just changing the number of years — which speaks to the need to get guns off the streets.
The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience.
After 40 years, Sean, Julian and I still miss him.
‘Imagine all the people living life in peace.’
