Rest in Peace, Precious Friend...Rest in Peace

Sad news this morning...Pete Seeger died last night...thankfully peacefully in his sleep.  He was 94 years old...he lived a long & extraordinary life.
 
I love this photo of him...singing & playing his banjo.  Pete's banjo has these words on it..."This machine surrounds hate & forces it to surrender."  Powerful words.  I was lucky enough to see him in concert with Arlo Guthrie back in the 1970s.  His music has always been at the top of my list of favorites...and is playing now...filling the house with memories of Pete.
 
Rest in Peace, Pete...I know you've got everyone singing along with you in the great beyond.
