Pete Seeger died last week at 94 years old. He sang at labor rallies and an inaugural celebration. He performed on stage and staged protests. His music played in the background of more than one generation as we grew up, fell in love, defined ourselves and defied government decisions.

As one friend said, “He lived so long because he had so much to do.”
