Jill Jackson's early life was filled with tragedy and self-doubt. Although she had moderate success as a film star, she tried to kill herself after her marriage fell apart. Her unsuccessful suicide attempt led to a deep spiritual awakening, and after marrying songwriter Sy Miller they co-wrote the 1955 classic song of hope, "Let There Be Peace On Earth and Let It Begin With Me," their most popular of nearly 80 song collaborations. The song gained worldwide popularity because of its universal message of longing for personal and planetary peace. "Let There Be Peace On Earth" continues to be the anthem of peace for generation after generation.
