Download Free Print: Pete Seeger’s Banjo
Pete Seeger will always remain one of my personal heroes. It’s not his political activism that necessarily draws me to him, but rather how much he valued the things in life that really matter; how he truly believed you can change the world by getting people to sing together. I admire his commitment to working people and human rights, but it is his 70-year marriage that places him above others who I respect, into a special group of those I aspire to be.
Every time I hear him speak he manages to say something so wise it moves me instantly and stays with me permanently.
I once heard him say the happiest people he’s met are those who are hurting in some way.
At the time I was hurting pretty bad, and it was incredibly moving to hear someone else who understood how on earth I could be so completely happy.
