Raising consciousness and connecting with working people for a whole lot of years. A great entertainer, too. Last saw him at The Grove in SF in '83(?)
One of the great warriors of our time has passed away. Pete Seeger has joined the heart of gold band. There will never be another like him, passive resistance thru song.
Rest in peace, Pete Seeger. You touched a lot of hearts and changed a lot of lives...
6 months ago David was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
His battle is over.
"I didn't think it would end this way."
"End? No, the journey doesn't end here.
Death is just another path, one that we all must take.
The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and
all turns to silver glass, and then you see it."
"What? See what?"
"White shores, and beyond,
a far green country under a swift sunrise."
"Well, that isn't so bad."
"No, No , it isn't."
Excerpt from the film "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
Wondered why I felt no lose with his passing then I realized I was happy.
Happy someone who changed the world got to live a long meaningful life. In my generation that means a lot!
Thank you God for the gift of Nelson Mandela. May he R.I.P.
A giant luminary of nonviolence takes his peace.
Lay you down, my dear brother.
It was the tix in his pocket and the red space your face 95' tour T he was wearing is why he is known as grateful fan/Doe. June 24 & 25 1995 at the Rfk stadium in Washington, D.C., The new event page on FB is trying to get as many ppl to post everywhere (not just FB) in hopes someone will recognize him. That is why it has the long name of "1995 Grateful dead fans @Rfk stadium Were you there??? Plz join". If someone here knows anything and not on FB plz contact me. Wish I could post pics here. They found the guy he got his tix from. He came with 20 tix and doesn't remember who he sold/gave them to. Some of us remember this when it happened and 18 yrs is too long. We don't want him to fade away.
they were GDTS tickets. If they were, maybe they could be traced back through their numbers. Though I doubt I am the first person to think of this in 18 years.
I hope they figure this out, it really is too long for this to go unresolved...
Thank you Anna rRxia. 200 people tested and excluded for him, He is one of many so I don't think finger prints are the answer. Not everyone have not walked right and been finger printed. There are young ppl with not much of a family left or more often unfortunately families do disown there own members. As freaks we all know this too well. His family is trying to find him and they are us. only deadheads can figure out how to accomplish anything with not much. ;)
A noble cause you are on as well as other deadheads. I'll do what I can but this sure does look like a cold trail. If the note found in his pocket had a phone number without an area code it sounds like the authorities didn't do the basic work of calling the # with all area codes. That is very sad!
One has to wonder why his family didn't make more of an effort to find him? He was ejected from a vehicle so his fingerprints were intact, therefore his fingerprints were not on file anywhere. I don't know with the consolidation of data bases if efforts are being made to recheck his fingerprint record on a regular basis. My feeling is that "the authorities" find this case long closed and aren't doing a thing other than maintaining a record locator just in case.
My predilection in such cases is to think spiritually about this fella. I have to believe after 18+ years his soul should have moved on. It would be horrible to think he was a ghost hanging around that death place still, as some people might think happens to people who die suddenly and won't let go of their body...
It is still possible to catch a break in this case, stranger things have happened.
1,2,3,4,5,6,7; All good deadheads go to heaven!
