One of the most popular songs in the US was written by
a Jewish immigrant named Israel Baline. We know him
as Irving Berlin. The song is “God Bless America“.
What moves me most is its simple prayer for America that says:
Stand beside her…,
and guide her…,
through the night
with the Light From Above
My hope and my prayer is that all the world’s people be guided
through the long dark nights with the Light From Above ….
