A Video on How to Over Come

Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.
Albert Camus, (1913 -- 1960), author, philosopher

Pete Seeger shows how we can over come the incredible odds.

I highly recommend “Pete Seeger: The Power of Song.” This is a wonderfully done documentary on the power of music and one man’s ability to unite and fight ongoing ignorance.

He is amazing. I bet you didn’t know that after Martin Luther King Jr. met with Seeger and watched perform the mid-1950s, King was inspired to use “We Shall Over Come.”

Last night on HBO, the "We Are One" special celebrating the coming inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama, and who should be the penultimate performer, none other than Peter Seeger singing "This Land is Our Land," which he sang in the 1930s with Woody Guthrie during the depression. The dream has the potential of coming true everyone, finally.
