Thank you for daring to be different, Pete Seeger.
Ninety-four years of a wonderful, significant life. And today we say goodbye.
One of the greatest pieces of advice Mr. Seeger offered a friend, and by extension all of us:
“Look ’em in the eye. Make a gesture of inclusion. And above all, have a chorus.” Which he always did, and made sure people sang along.
Pete Seeger talked the talk and walked the walk. Stood by ideals he believed in as an activist and prominent folk musician. Was he rare among his ilk? Maybe, although his were different times.
Thank you, Mr. Seeger.
To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
