Rest in Peace, Mister Rogers

Fred Rogers spent his entire life helping children to understand that they are special, beautiful people, different and wonderful, each in their own way. He let them know that it's okay to have feelings, and to express them, and that it's important to respect the feelings of others. He taught them that it's important to share, and that happiness shared grows, while sadness shared is reduced. He taught them to be themselves, just like he was himself, nothing less or more.

Today's world doesn't have neighbors; more and more people don't even know the folks who live next door. Fred Rogers taught us what being a neighbor means.

Fred Rogers was a gentle, beautiful soul, and he will be missed.
    It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
    A beautiful day for a neighbor,
    Would you be mine?
    Could you be mine?

    It's a neighborly day in this beautywood,
    A neighborly day for a beauty,
    Would you be mine?
    Could you be mine?

    I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
    I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

    So let's make the most of this beautiful day,
    Since we're together, we might as well say,
    Would you be mine?
    Could you be mine?
    Won't you be my neighbor?

    Won't you please,
    Won't you please,
    Please won't you be my neighbor?

  • "The Seeker"?

    Hmmm. Be very, very afraid. (And I thought I was frightened before.) Was Over Sea, Under Stone deemed too dull for a crowd of 2007 children?
