At a time when kids programming was all about fast and loud and talking down to children, Mister Rogers show stood out. He was about kindness, self-worth, and bringing light to the darkness.
Today is the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
Have I ever talked about Mister Rogers here? I don’t think so. But Mister Rogers Neighborhood was a favorite of mine growing up. His words and actions meant so much to me. Seeing this calm man who spoke right into the camera and told you how special you were made an impact.
