Yoko Ono Recreates Acorn Peace Promotion For The Spring Of 2009
Still pissed at Yoko about the whole breaking up The Beatles thing? Relax! Homegirl just wants a little peace.
Yoko Ono has plans to recreate the famous acorn peace promotion to help encourage world leaders to strive for a more loving planet.
“Recreate,” you say. “WTF?”
Well, the story goes that way back in 1968, John Lennon and Yoko Ono planted two acorns for peace at Coventry Cathedral. The acorns were planted in east and westerly positions, symbolizing the meeting of the couple and the union of their two cultures. They followed the planting by sending acorns to world leaders in the hope that they would plant oak trees in their gardens.
40 years later Yoko is hoping the campaign will once again make a difference and will send each world leader two acorns in a transparent box with the inscription “Acorn Peace by John And Yoko, Spring 2009”.
To see the letter Ono has written to Obama, as well as the original letters she received from world leaders in 1969, visit the Imagine Peace website.
