When I was young, I was taught two spaces, and I gave up on that somewhere in the late 2000s when it seemed to drop out of fashion. I don't think it's necessary.
I prefer two spaces. It gives clarity between sentence ends and abbreviations. Like your first sentence in your post, “And in the U.S.” If the next sentence began with a proper noun or something that would be capitalized regardless, you’d have to guess if it was a new sentence or not. With two spaces it’s always clear.most if not all of the folks over 40 still say they prefer two spaces. I do think it makes text easier to read with two spaces between sentences.
I agree with that if I am reading a book or something formal. And as I started to type a second sentence, I realized out of habit I put in 2 spaces. Looking back at some of my prior posts, I seem to do that more often than not. Habit I guessI prefer two spaces. It gives clarity between sentence ends and abbreviations.

Perfect!!!Here’s as best as I can put it, from what I know:
The “promised land” is a concept originating in Judaism, a place Abraham was told by God that he and his descendants would live in. Moses and Joshua lead the Israelites back to it after serving in Egypt as slaves. Fast forward many hundreds of years and the country of Israel was founded on the same notion of Jews returning to their homeland.
African-Americans took the concept of “the promised land” during slavery, to mean Heaven or an end to slavery. This usage is the one that’s led to the modern interpretation of the line, which is either a literally land promised to you, or just simply Heaven. Steve uses it in the song because it’s about a man who dies and comes back to life. The promised land in the song is paradise — Heaven. And the narrator says that it can wait til another day.
