Today on my drive through Houston I was saddened to hear that Olivia Newton-John had died from breast cancer. The woman had been an inspiration to many of a road trip sing-along and has now crossed over to heaven. She will be missed by many.
However I was unaware that she was a granddaughter of the famous Jewish physicist Max Born. He was a noble prize winner, friend of Einstein and teacher of the those that created the atom bomb. Amazing stuff! He was also not just a survivor but a rescuer.
It appears that many of the love songs that she sang were actually love songs to God. This just puts her in a whole different light.
Her grandfather is one of those well deserving people that will be honored in the Holocaust Garden of Hope. We say goodbye to Olivia and may she rest in Shalom.
