"Imagine all the people
living life in peace" - John Lennon
"A dream you dream alone
is only a dream.
A dream you dream together is reality" - Yoko Ono
October 9th, which would have been John Lennon's 67th birthday, Yoko Ono will
unveil IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, dedicated to her late
husband, in Reykjavik, Iceland.
In 1967, John Lennon predicted
that the conceptual light tower, envisioned by Yoko Ono, would one day become
a reality. On October 9th of this year, exactly 40 years later, IMAGINE PEACE
TOWER, a permanent landmark for peace will be unveiled in Reykjavik, Iceland.
PEACE TOWER is surrounded by a Wishing Well Wall on which the words "IMAGINE
PEACE" are engraved in 24 languages.
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER
gives light and power to the realization of World Peace, which was John Lennon's
lifetime wish, and what he had worked for. For this day, October 9th, 2007, like
minded friends from all over the world have been invited to Reykjavik, Iceland
to join Yoko Ono for the special ceremony, lending their spiritual power to the
tower, and their affirmation of unity for it's unveiling.
those present will be over 100,000 written wishes collected from all over the
world through Yoko's Wish Trees presented in different countries. They are put
in a series of capsules and will be placed on the Island of Viðey, surrounding
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER.
More wishes are being sent every day
for IMAGINE PEACE TOWER to the P.O. Box set up specially for it in Iceland (IMAGINE
PEACE TOWER, P.O. Box 1009, 121 Reykjavik, Iceland.) You, of course, are more
than welcome to send your wish as well.
Yoko Ono said today
(September 10th 2007); "I have chosen Iceland for IMAGINE PEACE TOWER because
it is a very unique eco-friendly country. 80% of Iceland's energy is provided
by water, not oil. Because of this, the air, water and earth are surprisingly
pure and clean. The energy for the Tower is also provided by water.
hope 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 realize
a peaceful world. I consider myself very fortunate to see the dream my husband
and I dreamt together become reality."
