Mr. Rogers and being decent
It was 50 years ago yesterday that Mr. Rogers Neighborhood started it's long run on PBS. For a lot of Americans, including me, Fred Rogers had a real influence on what we thought life could be like.
That is that it could be gentle.
That it could be decent.
That it could be about things bigger than ourselves.
That it would go forward in a world where we had a responsibility to one another.
We needed to hear that. We still do.
Seems like his name is popping up everywhere lately. I recommend reading "The Simple Faith of Mr. Rogers" -- it's a really good book that goes into some of his motivations and shares stories of people who were affected in many ways by his show.Post a Comment
