“Workers Short Hand”: Farewell To Pete

“It slices the meat off any argument.”-Utah Phillips-

Farewell Pete Seeger, you will be missed, and honored by the folk songs you gave us, with lyrics that build hope, and confront destruction.

Your greatness is what you did, taking up the actions of peace, a shared prosperity, and the dedication to community beyond borders.

I pray to make hope, love it when I do, and am grateful for people like you.

“If the pen is mightier than the sword, I hope the guitar is mightier than the bomb.” Pete Seeger
