    Default A reminder of Fred Rogers



    I watched this video and remembered seeing Mr Roger's Neighborhood when I was little. And my own kids discovering it many years later.

    This fall there is a Tom Hanks movie coming out that I hope captures the spirit of it.

    He never talked down to children. And he was not afraid to tackle the toughest topics. Race relations, divorce and death were within his gentle realm. And he was honest. He didn't pretend it was all laughs and songs. He gave it to the kids honestly, but gently.

    There will probably never be another tv personality like Fred Rogers. And that is a real shame. I think we could use one right about now.
