“You don’t need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are.”
John Lennon was murdered 35 years ago today when he was shot in front of his New York apartment building, but his messages of peace and love continue to live on through his music and supporters.
“Now that John’s a spirit, he has a different effect on people than when he was alive,” said Yoko Ono. “Spirits talk on a pure level and don’t get distracted by people saying things like, ‘That’s nice, but why’s he wearing that?’ … Of course, it would still be better if John was around.”
