-- Today marks one of the most tragic days in music history.
As she’s done many times before, Ono used the anniversary of her husband’s death to call attention to gun violence in America. On Wednesday night she tweeted the now-familiar image of the bloodied glasses Lennon was wearing when he was killed.
“Over 1,200,000 people have been killed by guns in the U.S.A. since John Lennon was shot and killed on Dec. 8, 1980,” reads the message on the image.
Along with the image, Yoko tweeted the message, “Together let's bring back America the green land of Peace. The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 36yrs we still miss him.”
John Lennon was 40 years old when he was murdered. Chapman, now 69, pleaded guilty to killing Lennon and is serving life in prison for the crime.
