Yoko Ono to honor slain children of conflict

In a gesture decrying the violence against Palestinian and Israeli children, Yoko Ono, the widow of Beatle John Lennon, will light Iceland’s Imagine Peace Tower tonight in dedication to the slain children.

The Imagine Peace Tower is a John Lennon memorial constructed by Ono and located near Reykjavík.

The light tower has the words “Imagine Peace” carved on its stone base in 24 languages, in a reference to the iconic song “Imagine.”

“As all of us are devastated by the loss of so many lives of innocent children in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, I will be lighting IMAGINE PEACE TOWER tonight, Thursday 7th August, hoping that the ceasefire will continue indefinitely, and no more innocent children will be harmed,” Ono posts on her Facebook page.
