Word for Word
Pete Seeger Event

 

After the event, a knockout storm flooded the park.  A veteran appeared;
face blackened and battered.  "Iraq two times and Afganistan and they don't help me now.  He removed his hat to scarred disfigured head bumps.
 It was hard!"

 
“The hardest part? I led the men down the hill to kill the enemy; young boys only 15, 16. How do you kill young boys?”  He sobbed crying. Thunder clapped and like a switch-flicked, his tears, pain and guilt erased.
His voice lowered:

 

 
“But, today Pete Seeger was here,” he continued: “Ohhhh!…I heard his music…the applause… like it fell from the sky.  Oh, Pete Seeger, he knows, he got it right.” Then the Vet sang out: Where have all the flowers gone; giving me a meager serenade that blossomed and stretched,
as he quickly left the park revived.

 

    Thank you, Pete Seeger for this extraordinary, magical day in

 New York City. You keep filling your cup to the brim.

There is no age. You’re as old as eternity as young

as this moment.

 

Pete Seeger:  His Life in His Own Words

 
 

P. S.

  Pete Seeger: National Medal of Arts (highest award given to artists by the US government) The Kennedy Center Honor when President Bill Clinton called him “an inconvenient artist, who dared to sing things as he saw them.” Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for influencing artists; Grammy Award; PBS Seeger life special The Power of Song;  Pre-inaugural celebration  for President-elect Barack Obama, at the Lincoln Memorial  singing This Land Is Your Land  plus tunes of his political views. The world listened.  Madison Square Garden concert honored his 90th birthday with over15, 000 admirers. Performers included Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, Billy Bragg, Rufus Wainwright, Bela Fleck, Taj Mahal, Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Dar Williams, Tom Morello, Ani DiFranco, and John Mellencamp. Seeger joined in with banjo and led the crowd. In the 21st century, the nation’s most prominent singers recorded albums honoring Seeger, like Bruce Springsteen’sSeeger Sessions.

In 1969 he launched the group Clearwater and an annual celebration dedicated to cleaning up the Hudson River, pollution. It inspired the environmental movement. Etc.
