National Day of Mourning, 28 January

As everyone, their mother, and their cats have noted today, musical and actiivist icon Pete Seeger passed away early this morning of natural causes at age 94. It's not a tragedy, because of the rich legacy he leaves in both music and conscience, a higher ideal than many of us can aspire to reach (though an excellent one to aim for).

Add that to the fact that this date is also the anniversary of the Challenger disaster, and it would be a good day for a National Day of Mourning in the US (and elsewhere).

Here's a song that's triply appropriate, as being Pete making music (though not a song he wrote) with an environmental theme, and about space.
