I remember after Sept 11 2001 how the country came together in pain and patriotism, and now I am seeing a similar thing, but this time it’s hope and patriotism.
We need these family reunions from time to time, I think.
This video captures a little of that family reunion spirit. It is of Pete Seeger leading an enormous crowd in “This Land is Your Land”. Pete Seeger records were the soundtrack of my childhood — my whole family loved him and his optimistic folk singing. He’s in his 80’s now. Thanks to my sister Kayray for pointing it out!
