So long Pete Seeger! Thank you for your voice and your heart! I never had much, but I did have music, and music is what kept me going when the world was a cold cold place. I remember freezing and starving on the Lower East Side, but the spirit of music kept me going.
You believed music could save the world – and it saved mine.
I am grateful for your life, Mr. Seeger, bodhisattva, and all those you’ve inspired.
I don’t know whether to smile or cry.
