The 50 Years with Peter, Paul and Mary on PBS now is so bittersweet [View all]

Not just the music, but their amazing committment and real caring about humanity. Death threats for their civil rights activities, farm workers, re-uniting after 7 years to singing protest about the Diablo nuke plant sitting on the San Andreas Fault. "If there was a cause, they were there for it."

There is nothing like this now. Nothing to stir our souls like they, and so many othet folksingers did.

I was in a trio in high school...we sang around town...most memorable was singing "the cruel war is raging...." at an Old Guard meeting and seeing old vets crying...

Sigh..

I still have their debut album tucked away....
