[Xmca-l] Re: Pete Seeger



Pete Seeger was indeed a powerful, kind presence who made a real
difference.

Ronnie Gilbert is not dead, incidentally. She was alive and onstage,
albeit with walking carefully with a cane, at a recent memorial service
for Faith Petric, member of the Freedom Song Network and mother of the San
Francisco folk music society. Faith was 98 and good to the last drop. John
McCutcheon told of visiting her in hospice and singing "Solidarity
Forever" with her. Pete Seeger sent a message which was read at the
concert.

These old heroes are a bunch of tough cookies.
