Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono wrote: “More than 1.5 million people have been shot dead in the United States since John Lennon was shot on December 8, 1980.”
The estate of his former Beatles mate George Harrison tweeted from the official account: “It was the great thing about John and what I got from him, from all these years. He saw that we are not only in the material world; he saw beyond death, that this life is only a small play. And he understood it. “
The Central Park account in New York City, where an Imagine for Lennon mosaic is located near the Dakota building where he lived, also tweeted.
“December 8 marks the anniversary of John Lennon’s death. Join us for a memorial walk to the living memorial of the late Beatle,” he said.
