It’s Christmas–Forcing Hate To Surrender

Pete Seeger was a major influence of mine during my formative adolescent years. Pete and the folk singers who followed in his footsteps drove Dad crazy, but I guess as an adolescent, that was OK by me.

We visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last weekend. After I drug my wife from the Elvis exhibit, we hit this exhibit.

Makes me wonder why I quit singing those old folksongs.

Think on the sentiment and enjoy the day, if you can. If not, the Bible tells us there’s a time to laugh and a time to weep. If it your time for weeping today, don’t hide it. Weep well.

Meanwhile perhaps we can think about Pete’s saying on his banjo head, “This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender.”
