Tearful Yoko Ono Talks About John Lennon Exhibit

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- A new John Lennon exhibit is particularly emotional for his widow, Yoko Ono. Besides guitars and other items, it also includes a paper bag containing the bloody clothes from the night he was shot to death.
Ono says including that was a hard decision. But she says she ultimately decided to do so to let people see the effects of gun violence.
The former Beatle was shot to death in 1980.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in New York City is opening the exhibit this week. It runs for several months.
