My family and I will miss seeing Niles at the many events he attended with the Finkelstein family asRead More well as of course his smiling face at the farm. The last time I saw him was on the way into Helen Hayes Hospital, where he gave me a big cheery hello even though on his back on a stretcher. That was Niles, a gem of a man. Our most sincere sympathies to all of his family, who need never worry that his name be forgotten. Bruce Gionet, Barbara Finkelstein, Alex, and Anna.

One of the many things that I always admired about Seeger is that when he was dragged before HUAC heRead More stood up for his principles. He didn't try to save his own career by naming names. His career suffered for decades because of the courage he showed protecting all of our right's to free speech and thought. When darkness and fear threatened to overtake the land Pete lit a candle and didn't go gently into the night.

It is a mighty tribute to Pete Seeger that all of us know the words to "This Land is YourRead More Land". Pete gave Woodie Guthrie's song to us. Pete also gave us the Gospel song "We Shall Overcome". Another song we sing with fervor. On his banjo, there is a circle of words, "This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender." May we all think this way. Thank You Pete Seeger.

Very sad. He seemed like a very kind hearted man. I had the opportunity to email him in the pastRead More and he was very responsive. Sympathy to his family and friends.
