President-elect Joe Biden called on the nation to work with Washington DC to illuminate buildings and ring church bells at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday evening to honor those killed by the coronavirus. Dr. Gary Zola is the executive director of the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives in Clifton. He chose to play God Bless America shortly after bells rang at the national unity moment. “The words of God Bless America are very praying words and words of exaltation, and I think that is what we need very badly in this country right now as we start a new government,” said Zola. President-elect Joe Biden also presided over a special ceremony. “In order to heal, we need to remember, and sometimes it’s hard to remember, but that’s how we heal,” said Biden. A gloomy lighting service was held for the 400,000 Americans who have died so far. “For many months we have mourned alone, tonight we mourn and begin to heal together.” Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris said: A nation broken by grief, but is united by the hope for a healthier future.
