Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
Responses here echo many that were in the first thread on Mr. Seeger's impending retirement. Though he has championed many causes in his lifetime he has done it with class and has earned the respect that is afforded him. I have seen him in person and read many of his articles and have never known him to spue the kind of hatred that is so common today when people speak of those who hold opposing views. Much could be learned from him on how to address one's concerns. The enjoyment I have found in music is due in part to him. I have not always agreed with his political views, but I am saddened to think he will no longer be performing and helping others enjoy music. I can't imagine him not continuing to speak out for justice and freedom.
