"Mr. President, why not make America safe for democracy?" "Thou shalt not kill." "Pray for the Lady Macbeth's of East St. Louis" and "Give us a chance to live."

In 1943, she was 26 years old when on March 31st, the Broadway musical Oklahoma! opened.

In 1985, by the time she was 68 years old, on March 7th, the song "We Are the World" was released as a charity effort to alleviate the African famine.
