Pete Seeger is deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize because of his outstanding career as a cultural messenger for peace and social justice over the course of his 93-year lifetime. Using his prowess as a musician and iconic songwriter, he continues to engage people, from all walks of life, from many nations, and across generations, in causes to build peace and create a more civilized world. Music is the universal language of peace and no more fitting a candidate is worthy of this honor.

      Pete Seeger helped make me a better person and the world a better place. He should be canonized as well as given the Nobel Peace Prize.

      All his life he stood for peace. He taught and lived peace. He knew how to use his talents to change hearts and minds and he created movements to clean the earth and to create peace within communities. He taught others to take music out into the world and do the same.
