Concert On The Mall

Jill & Joe Biden, Barack & Sasha Obama

Pete Seeger was a rickety old man over 20 years ago when I saw him at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. He must be at least 100 years old. What a hopeful omen for the country that he was there at the Lincoln Memorial today singing Woody Guthry's This Land Is Your Land, yes, with all the verses.

Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce,

Beyoncé - America The Beautiful

I feel a little corny but can not stop my eyes from watering while Beyonce leads the crowd in singing America the Beautiful.


  1. Pete Seeger will turn 90 this year sometime. Let me tell ya~ he looked pretty old when I saw him in Berkeley/SF in the 60's! He certainly deserved to be there yesterday!

  2. Hi Peggy Sue -

    We have crossed a boundary, haven't we? The air seems cleaner and the sun brighter. I feel that we have a president that wants to work for the American people, rather than just "decider-ing" things for us.

    Keep up your great efforts!

    Kind regards,
