Farewell, Pete (1919-2014)
I would be willing to bet that most people under 30 have no idea who Pete Seeger was. That's a shame, but he hails from a time so radically different from today that I would bet that his life style and musical leanings are very nearly incomprehensible to young folks. I won't try to explain who he was or what he did. There are lots and lots of news stories today that can do that far better than I. I'll just say that he was a giant among men. And he made my own life a little bit more bearable and interesting just by being who he was. He lived his life the way he wanted to and he tried to be a good, productive human being. We probably won't see the likes of him again for a long, long time. Farewell, Pete. Thanks.
