It was a message reminiscent of the Lennons' 44th wedding anniversary, depicting a marriage founded on peace, using a photo of the late John Lennon's bloody glasses, according to NBC's Today.
On Twitter Wednesday, 79-year-old Yoko Ono fired a series of tweets drawing attention to gun violence. Lennon was 40 when he was shot to death in front of his home in New York.
The tweet read: "Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980."
"31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into war zone," Ono also tweeted. "The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him...."
