I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Singing Patriots

I love America. I love the values my parents taught me of love for the environment, community responsibility, lending a helping hand to all and most of all to never be afraid to speak out for those values you believe in.  Anyone who gives voice against injustice is my hero...and today heroes are out there everywhere....I got on this train of thought when I read that if Woody Guthrie had been alive, today would be his 98 b-day.

I  grew up with one foot in Woody Guthrie land...living in an around the area changed so dramatically by the BPA  and living with his music...so many memories. Along with him is Pete Seeger (now 91)...and of course, Arlo...and others including my father (a Texas guitar picker) and my deceased husband (banjo/fiddle player) ...Dead or alive they sing on to give voice to our hopes and beliefs. The least we can do is sing along.

Deep in my heart I do believe...the whole wide world around! Keep singing it...
