Remembering Pete Seeger, Riverkeeper

Legendary Pete Seeger died Monday, January 27 at the age of 94. His music inspired an entire generation to speak out against social injustice, war and pollution. His love for the Hudson River which is also my river was part of what first inspired me at the age of 12 to write to President Nixon about the environment and the Hudson River and to start a group at my school to advocate for cleaning it up. His voice will be missed but his music and advocacy for our Earth will live on:
