"G-d's counting on Me, G-d's counting on You."

Of all the songs that Pete Seeger wrote, arranged, sung, and led us in singing, I think that this song should be his lasting testament. (At least this week.) Read the Lyrics. Listen tonight, after 10:00 PM on Steve's "Cookin' for Shabbos" show - he'll certainly be playing it. But understand what Pete is saying:
1)  Take Personal Responsibility  (notice G-d's counting on ME, is before G-d's counting on You)
2)  Trickle Up not Trickle Down - we can't trust the "leaders" we need to work from the ground up - Grassroots and all of that....

Pete Seeger. The true FOLK SINGER. Telling us about what's going on (this song originally came out in 2010 after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill) and encouraging us to keep going on.

You can find the song on the album, A More Perfect Union - Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt, released in 2013.

Pete - we thank you for all you gave us, and for all you will continue to give us.
Pete Seeger, we bid you good night.
