Goodby Mary. RIP

This may have been the first, or one of the first anti-war songs that I ever heard - and on mainstream TV, no less. It's one of the things that changed my life because it showed me that there was another way of thinking, another way to approach the world and that there were many like me "out there." There still are but we don't have a Peter, Paul and Mary to sing about it.

Thank heavens we still have their recordings. She will be missed.
