IMAGINE PEACE TOWER Unveiling Speech by Yoko Ono
All spirits of goodness of this magical land, of the planet, and of the universe,
thank you, thank you, thank you, for witnessing our humble gathering
for the unveiling of IMAGINE PEACE TOWER.
They say that if all the people in China were to jump up and down at the same time,
the axis of the globe would shift.
Well, we are here together.
Billions of us.
Standing at the dawn of a new age determined to shift the axis of the world to health,
peace and joy by loving and caring for all lives on Earth.
Some of us are here physically, some are joining us in spirit.
Some of us are imprisoned, tortured, maimed and silenced, but they are also here today with us.
Some of us have passed away before being able to enjoy a new age of love and peace.
But we are all here today standing together with hope.
The light is the light of wisdom, healing and empowerment.
Even in the moments of confusion, fear and the darkness of your souls, hold the light
in your hearts, and you will know that you are not alone, that we are all together in
seeing the light of peace.
I thank the people of Iceland, for having given so much love to this tower from its inception.
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER was visualized with love, and realized by love.
It is a gift from John and Yoko and the people of Iceland to the world.
I know that John is with us, too, in this land of Nutopia,
happy that the light tower is finally a reality after 40 years.
Let’s make a wish as the light goes on.
Let’s send light to each other and say I love you!

John, we love you!
