Woody Guthrie died 50 years ago today

Sending hope and prayers out to the victims, families and people of Las Vegas and Puerto Rico (and RIP Tom Petty) on this day, October 3, 2017. 50 years ago today, we lost Woody Guthrie - a folk music icon for the ages. In these difficult times, it's comforting to recall what Woody once said about hope and resiliency:

Whatever you do, wherever you go
Don’t lose your grip on life and that means
Don’t let any earthy calamity knock your dreamer and your hoping machine
Out of order
