"Imagine Peace" written in Inuktitut on a tower in Iceland.
IMAGINE PEACE: Written in Inuktitut, found in Iceland.
This white panel is part of the Imagine Peace tower, created by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. The tower is on Videy, near Reykjavik, and it shines brilliant beams of light into the heavens for part of each year.
Around the base, ‘imagine peace’ is inscribed in 24 languages.
I was there last fall with Yoko Ono and a small crowd for the annual lighting of the tower. We stood together and sang along with John Lennon, as ‘Imagine’ poured out of the speakers and over the North Atlantic. Magic.
