One of the many things that I always admired about Seeger is that when he was dragged before HUAC heRead More stood up for his principles. He didn't try to save his own career by naming names. His career suffered for decades because of the courage he showed protecting all of our right's to free speech and thought. When darkness and fear threatened to overtake the land Pete lit a candle and didn't go gently into the night.

It is a mighty tribute to Pete Seeger that all of us know the words to "This Land is YourRead More Land". Pete gave Woodie Guthrie's song to us. Pete also gave us the Gospel song "We Shall Overcome". Another song we sing with fervor. On his banjo, there is a circle of words, "This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender." May we all think this way. Thank You Pete Seeger.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had the great pleasure and honor of working with Bob thru Puig'sRead More relationship with Coty. I enjoyed our conversations about his farm, his family and especially hearing about Quin's milestones as a baby. Bob's love for his family and farm made his eyes light up and that is the true mark of a wonderful man. He will be missed. My prayers are with his family and friends.
