Mary Travers

Earlier this week, Patrick Swayze passed away from pancreatic cancer, one of the nastiest cancers out there. Today we have lost a legend, this time from side-effects of a bone marrow transplant. Mary Travers, along with her partners, Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow, brought me many hours of pleasure through music. She fought for civil rights and against war. She was never afraid to speak out.

Mary, we hate to see you go.

So sad! This is my favourite of their songs, I think.
