Pete Seeger: The Joy of It All

It is important that Pete Seeger was given 94 years to teach us. He didn't change a lot that you can see, just a few hearts and minds here and there, but his words live with us and with our children and their children.

His words of "peace" and "love" and "freedom" came from his heart and settled upon the shoulders of a reluctant, cranky nation that never fully appreciated this deeply evolved old soul.

My guess is that he's among those old souls now, his so ancient that it may not return, even though we need him now more than ever. I'm sad for our loss, happy for a good man who is now truly free to travel the halls and the fileds, plunking his banjo, smiling and singing about the joy of it all.

Thank you Pete Seeger. You lived a life of meaning.
