Choice quote from Yoko:
The concept of Wish Tree is growing rapidly through the world. It is the innate desire of human race to want to wish for a better life. This time, we are wishing it together. The power of the togetherness makes all of us speechless. Lets keep wishing until the world will finally be a happy place for us. I love you! yoko
