remembering...

Today is the anniversary of "Shock and Awe"... but there is something so much more important and uplifting I want to remember today...

Happy Birthday Mister Rogers... you are sorely missed.










In view of what this day stands for... I thought this was a fitting clip.



Thank you Mister Rogers... You've made so many days a special day... just by being who you were.

Love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes!

I LOVED Mr. Rogers! He and Captain Kangaroo made me the man I am today.

So....blame them.

I hear kids loved him....I missed that whole thing

He made quite an impact on alot of kids...

Barbara: I have a great deal of respect for someone who decided to dedicate his life to showing kids they matter, just for being who they are.

Hugs

Fab: I thought Fozzy Bear was to blame for you!

Bond: Didn't your Matt watch him? WE had another man like him here in Canada... Mr Dressup (aka Ernie Coombs). A few people left me in a state of deep mourning upon their passing: Jim Henson and Ernie Coombs were the ones who had the most impact.

Buff: Who in turn will hopefully carry that on with today's children.

His appearance before the United States Senate subcommittee on Communications, when Richard Nixon wanted to cut funding in half for PBS quality children's programming to pay for the war in Vietnam makes him a saint if you ask me.

During his speaking engagements, he would ask for 60 seconds of silence; he would instruct the audience to use the minute of silence to remember those who helped them become who they were.
