Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Birthday - 81 today
He taught me the words to "Last Night I had the Strangest Dream" -- one of the first times I realized that other people had those perceptions and feelings too -- I musta been about 8. He taught me that song is a great weapon for the betterment of life. He taught me to honor quiet heros like Authurine. HE taught me the Talking Union and a hundred or two other fine songs.
Every time I look around in my favorite early lessons, he's not far off. You hit it on the head, Rick -- we're lucky to have lived in his times.
