A few of you who've been reading here awhile may remember that I featured a post about Pete Seeger still performing and singing to kids in schools. If you watch this excerpt from the PBS American Masters series you'll see that he started out that way when his politics of peace made them the only audiences he could get.
Pete knew what he was doing because those kids brought change to America. And Pete always made sense, never more than when he sang,
" The world needs housing, food, and schools.
Bring 'em home, home, home."
A close parallel to the current situation in America, I think.
And Pete must know it, since at 89 he's still singing.
Thanks, Mr. Seeger, for being such an inspiration. While you keep raising your voice, I feel we'll be all right.
