mood: tearful

OK, this is week-old news, and it's lifted from a blog that has a heck of a lot more readers than I do: Dave Winer's Scripting News.  But maybe I have one or two that he doesn't. 

On Monday, 2009-01-19, he wrote:


For me this was the most emotional moment of yesterday's concert at the Lincoln Memorial: Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen leading a chorus of This Land is Your Land.  

All those people singing, and Pete Seeger after all these years -- he can still lead a crowd in song. 


Pretty damn emotional for me, too.  So get out a box of Kleenex, if you're susceptible to the old-folkie weepies (you know who you are).  But whether you're susceptible or not, watch the clip.  It will be, ahem, five minutes well spent.
