Some of you may remember a folk singer, writer, activist and poet named Peter Seeger. The words that he put to music had something to say. He helped to make the careers of several well known musical artists and influenced generations of environmentalists and political activists.
A man of simple needs and far reaching ideas and ideals, Pete Seeger made a difference in the way I looked and now look at the world. His words were one of the reasons I stayed in Marine Biology and didn’t go back into a much more lucrative career in electronics.
He passed away on January 27, 2014 at the age of 94. Pete was out chopping wood ten days before he died.
The world was a better place with him and a lesser place now that he is gone. You really did have a hammer. Thanks, Pete!
