I am 48, and in the early 70s, my parents were involved with the Sloop Clearwater, which was one of PS's big projects and great successes. I am not sure I would swim in the Hudson even now and even at Albany, but the river is no longer a fire hazard and that was no small accomplishment.

My memories of Uncle Pete are mostly sitting at his feet while he sang Abi-Yoyo and Little Boxes.

He was a sincere, hard working man who did what he believd with great vigor until the day he died. What better can you say of any man?

Thanks for the post ML.

This is Abiyoyo, tremendous kids song.

Maureen, thanks for posting. While I did not always agree with his stances, Pete Seeger singing reminded our nation not only of our promise but our failures.
