Pete Seeger.

Y'know, it's funny. We pay offhand repect to birthdays and passings-on in all the social media, and a lot of the time there's only a distant connection to the person. But Pete Seeger? This one hits home a little closer. A lot of us pretty much grew up within the long, warm shadow cast by this man. Whether his voice was raised in song or against oppression and pollution, we had the opportunity to listen, and learn, and join in. Pete always invited us along. Can't exactly mourn the earthly close of a full and purposeful life like Pete's. But what we can do instead is celebrate the fact that we got to live alongside him for a while.
