Where have all the flowers gone?

LEGENDARY folk singer and social activist Pete Seeger has passed away at the age of 94, but his songs and words will live on.

Best known for eco-folk ballads such as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)”, Seeger became somewhat of a spiritual icon throughout his career, often noted by the pacifist and contemplative themes of his songs.

“My job,” he said in 2009, “is to show folks there’s a lot of good music in this world, and if used right it may help to save the planet.”

He once said: “a good song reminds us what we’re fighting for”.

So here’s good song with a message.
