Thanks for a great post. I have included it as part of a post I am doing! Mr. Rogers rocks!

Hi breyeschow--I'm glad you liked the post :-). The more I learn about Fred Rogers, the more inspired I feel by his approach to life.

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

I read through this post again today and its just as good or better than the other day. Great contribution to the community known as Planet Earth.

Thanks so much, David. This is my secret plan--I write a post and leave it sitting at the top of the page for a week or more, then hopefully folks will stop by and read it over and over, think about it and leave wonderful comments. So far it's working! :-)


Thanks so much for posting this about Mr. Rogers. I remember watching him as a kid, but I didn't know a lot of these things you wrote about. What an amazing man.

What Mr. Rogers taught me was gentleness.

Thanks again, Sharon!

Just thinking about people like Mr. Rogers expands the heart. Thank you!

Hi Dawn,

Thanks so much--yes, one of the main things that stands out to me is Mister Rogers' gentleness also. He was just someone who was immediately trustworthy, and as a kid he was an adult we could look to and know that he would tell us the truth and try to ease our fears.

He was just an all around great man, but yeah, the gentleness is probably his greatest legacy.

Hi Patry--me too! me too--I just am constantly impacted by Fred Rogers and the generosity and gentleness of his heart--it makes my heart expand too!

Thanks so much for stopping by! :-)

hi dawn. this post made me smile. not only did mr. rogers teach us how to just genuinely be good people to each other, but i now think that he was the first and original 'see-through' company. he was a brand and it sounds like he lived that brand/life whether the camera was on or off. we can/should learn a lot from him both personally and professionally. thanks for this post.

I watched Mister Rogers as a child, every day without fail.

He made me want to be a better person.

Hi Esther,

He made a big impact on me too--even to this day, sometimes I'll think "What would Mister Rogers do in this situation?"
