RIP Pete Seeger and Tom Sherak
It is sad when someone you have admired dies. It is extremely difficult when two die. Pete Seeger was a legend, an activist, and brilliant song writer who believed that the power of music could not only entertain, but could impact social change. He used his lyrics to help working men and women, and to fight for civil rights for all Americans. Tom Sherak was a successful film executive who led the Academy successfully for years, and using his influence, raised over $45 Million for multiple sclerosis research. Both of these men contributed to American culture, and used their status and talent to help those in need. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of these two men, and I hope they rest in peace.
