It Would Have Been His Birthday...

By liz

Yesterday, on what would have been JOHN LENNON's 62nd Birthday (Oct. 9) , YOKO ONO has awarded the first ever LennonOno Grant for Peace. She awarded the prize of 50,000 USD to two artists from Palestine and Isreal on the work they've done to promote peace during "the intense political situation we all live in." Secretary-General of the UN, Kofi Annan was quoted as saying, "peace is everybody's business -- not just an issue for governments."

On an secondary note, Mark David Chapman was denied parole again yesterday for the second time.
