Good bye, Pete Seeger

en de
Pete Seeger died January 27th, 2014, but his spirit will always be alive.

Good bye, Pete Seeger! Where have all the flowers gone?
You have been a great role model with your music, with your political commitment and your love for life.
You have taken a stand when it came to the rights of the exploited, when it came to the rights of nature, when it came to dignify life.
You were an upright and brave person throughout all your life. You did not give up, even when they wanted to get rid of you.
Thank you for your songs.
Thank you for your warmth which is in the sounds of your lyrics.
Thank you for your radicality with which you stood in life!
Thank you for being engaged for the vision of a better world.

We shall overcome!
