One of the most famous Japanese people on earth, Yoko Ono, said Japan will recover from the current earthquake-tsunami tragedy.

The 78-year-old widow of Beatle John Lennon, appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” on CNN and pointed to how the Japanese rebuilt the country after the devastation of World War II -- which Ono lived through.

It's very similar, and we did recover in an incredible way, Ono said of the war.

And I'm sure that we will too this time. I think it's a kind of challenge -- it's a very big challenge, nobody wants this kind of big challenge. Well, with a big challenge, I'm sure that some big, big beautiful results will happen.
