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.

Krista, we have fond memories of meeting you and Caroline that day for "Coffee withRead More Caroline." She was so sweet to agree to gather with us and a few of our writer friends at Grown and Flown. The story about her father was memorable. We will miss hearing her on the peak, daily.

You are not dead. As a matter of fact nobody ever dies. You want to know why? Because you're goingRead More to live inside everybody who ever knew you, everyone you ever touched no matter how little. And the people who love you- your mom, your dad, your brothers, sisters, your friends at school- they're never going to stop thinking about you. Or talking about you. They're never going to forget you cause that never goes away. You're never going to die cause you were loved. Because you loved. You're going to live forever. We all will."

To the family of the deceased I am truly sorry for your lost, It’s never easy to loseRead More someone you love. The pane can sometimes be unbearable at the time, but there is hope! it is human and natural to grieve and we should not feel ashamed to let our grief be manifest. Even when tempered by the hope of the resurrection, the death of a loved one is still a traumatic loss, which is deeply felt. YES resurrection! Jesus performed that unforgettable resurrection in front of many eyewitnesses. It was a token of the future resurrection that he had predicted on an earlier occasion, when he said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [the Son of God’s] voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”—John 5:28, 29 With this HOPE you can see your loved ones again. When death strikes a loved one, for example, hope can make a world of difference to the survivors. The apostle Paul wrote to the Christians at Thessalonica: “We do not want you to be ignorant concerning those who are sleeping in death; that you may not sorrow just as the rest also do who have no hope.”—1 THESSALONIANS 4:13.
