A TRIBUTE TO.....Pete Seeger. A legend dies

He wrote song that inspired many people around the word, and these same songs live on as if they were written yesterday.

These are songs that made people to think about the world and what we thought the world aught to be.

They were all pretty simple and easy to understand but they made the young feel as if he understood them, which was truly an awakening.

This was a time of threatening nuclear war, the Vietnam war and the awakening of black America.

Sadly man has not achieved very much since then, we still have wars that seem not to have achieved very much and a black person in America hasn't progressed as far as Pete thought they would.

We were blessed to have such a person with us for so long, he kept to his story and never gave in to the forces that opposed him.

He was called a Communist and worse and yet he did not waiver, he did what he could in his way. That was Pete Seeger's way.
THANKS PETE, THE WORLD IS A BETTER PLACE BECAUSE OF YOU.

Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I’d never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
I dreamed I saw a mighty room,
The room was full of men.
And the paper they were signing said
They’d never fight again.
And when the paper was all signed,
And a million copies made,
They all joined hands and bowed their heads,
And grateful prayers were prayed.
And the people in the streets below
Were dancing ’round and ’round,
While swords and guns and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.
Last night I had the strangest dream,
I’d never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
By Pete Seeger
