Bless Pete Seeger

We lost one of the true greats last night ... beautiful Pete Seeger.

If you never have, please watch Pete Seeger: The Power Of Song. At a time when it seems there are so few American men to look up to, in any real way, this loss is especially glaring and harsh. Watching the swagger and bombast of the Grammy Awards the night before, with the dudes strutting by with their sunglasses on inside at night, was pretty sad actually, when you realize that not one of them comes close to the integrity, the sheer belief in MUSIC and GOODNESS, and the shining example of humanity that skinny old Pete Seeger lived his entire long and happy life.

Let us celebrate THAT kind of life ... not the emptiness of celebrity culture. Let us all be REAL. Be Meaningful. Be GOOD. Be people that try to make the world a better place every day.

Let us all be like Pete.

"Being generous of spirit is a wonderful way to live." - Pete Seeger

  1. Beautiful article!! I agree completely. So sad that celebrity often turns formerly normal people into fakey, big-headed creatures that do not care for anyone other than themselves and don't even do a good job of that. Thank God there are some who are faithful to their mates and kind and caring to others, and great role models, in spite of being famous. And they don't say things like "God bless you" for show, but because they mean it!! Yes, Mr. Seeger will be missed!!
