Writer of Destiny: Pete Seeger

Yesterday a friend of mine sent me a link that I wanted to share with all of you, in case you missed this in the international news last week.

This story reminded me of the power of writers of song who affect destinies beyond their own.  In this case, the song is My Rainbow Race written by Pete Seeger (age 93 today).

Here’s what a group of thousands Norwegian’s sang in response to Breivik’s massacre, after they heard Breivik, who is on trial inside the building where this gathering took place, dislikes this song (the lead singer with the ukulele is Nilson):

Hope this story and Pete Seeger’s song inspire you as much as they did me, for showing the power of our words to create a new destiny in the world.

    1. Sadly, I’ve never heard Pete Seeger live. Amazingly, I believe he’s still out performing, so I should make an effort to hear and see him perform.
