I thought Pete Seeger would live forever … or at least to 100. There was something eternal about Pete. Always on the side of right and justice for everyone. He made a difference in my world and I think the greater world too. You couldn’t silence Pete Seeger. You couldn’t scare him away.
He saved the Hudson River, virtually single-handed and probably kept folk music alive in the world. Pete Seeger was there when I was a little kid, always singing — all the way into my senior citizenship. What a life! He made me want to sing, too.
He can never be replaced. A true gentleman, a patriot, a real stand up guy … and one of a kind.
