Mary Traver's mother was right about compromises:
<snip>
"My mother was a marvelous woman: bright, beautiful, dry wit. . . . She used to say to me, 'Be careful of compromise, Mary. There's a very thin line between compromise and accomplice.' So that was Mom," she told the New York Times in 1999. "I think I grew up at a time with mentors. I think it's very hard for young people today because there isn't really a whole lot of good mentor material out there. I had Pete Seeger, I had my mother and my father."

1. Mary Travers and PPM believed in social justice
A term we seldom hear any more. Social justice. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
I shed a tear this morning reflecting on PPM and a world once filled with hope.
Thank you Mary Travers for practicing what you preached.
