This land is your land

The highlight for me of the “We are one” concert at Lincoln Memorial was not musical but symbolic. It was the sight of Pete Seeger singing “This Land is Your Land” to the president elect and a gathering of thousands. This was a complete and welcome suprise.

Some bloggers have already jumped ugly with seeing the former blacklisted performer on stage, so I’ll remind them of the inscription on Seeger’s banjo:

“This little machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender”
