It’s A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood

by Uran
Today marks the would-be birthday of one of my heroes: Mister Fred Rogers. It’s been ten years since we lost this man who brought joy to so many children through his 33-year run on television, and it’s easy to forget the lessons we were taught as kids in his Neighborhood. Life gets busy, and as we get older, we tend to become increasingly hard on ourselves and each other. But it's when we're struggling for success and fighting to stay on top of our game that are the most crucial times to remember his messages of love, respect, gratitude, and hope.
So today, I hope you’ll join me in remembering this man who dedicated his life to giving children the tools to be better people...The man who found positivity in everything and chose to look at the world in a very real, but still very hopeful, way. Take a moment to remember the lessons he taught you. Tell someone you love them. Thank the people who have made you who you are. Remember that you’re special.
And if you’re interested in learning more about Mister Rogers, I encourage you to take a look at this wonderful tribute to his life. Warning: You’ll feel warm and fuzzy afterward, and you might find he still has plenty of lessons to teach you. 🙂
