Yoko Ono recounts own hunger during war in Japan

TOKYO, Japan

The 80-year-old widow of John Lennon said Thursday that she believes he would be happy to see his song "Imagine" used by WhyHunger and Hard Rock to raise support for their child nutrition and sustainable farming efforts in 22 countries.

Like Ono, many Japanese fled Tokyo during wartime bombing raids.

Ono said some she knew starved to death. She sometimes went to school without lunch, and just told classmates she wasn't hungry.
