"America, it's America. There, there, I see it. I see it. I see it. America." People began to cheer, even those who could not yet see it. The ship moved closer and closer and it entered New York Harbor.The cheering and singing continued. Now, suddenly, there was silence. People were mesmerized. People were staring.

Ten Hail Marys and an Our Father, were repeated over and over again. Many children, not understanding the moment, seemed confused by the tears of their fathers. Many had never seen their fathers cry. Hugs were in large supply. A Rabbi stood rocking to and fro with his hands clasped on his chest, tears dripped from his eyes onto his cheeks, and then trailed down into his beard.
