I often watch and listen to Democracy Now’s streaming broadcast. It is the best source of news that I can find. The July 4th broadcast was a hour with Pete Seeger, and the last lines of the show were really powerful. Here they are from the transcript that they have online.
AMY GOODMAN: Well, I want to thank you very much for being with us. And for someone who isn’t so hopeful who is listening to this right now, trying to find their way, what would you say?
PETE SEEGER: Realize that little things lead to bigger things. That’s what Seeds is all about. And this wonderful parable in the New Testament: the sower scatters seeds. Some seeds fall in the pathway and get stamped on, and they don’t grow. Some fall on the rocks, and they don’t grow. But some seeds fall on fallow ground, and they grow and multiply a thousand fold. Who knows where some good little thing that you’ve done may bring results years later that you never dreamed of.
The power of seeds… a marvelous thing.
