Flowers left for Fred Rogers
'There's so much in this world we can learn.'Fred 'Mister' RogersFred 'Mister' Rogers was so much a part of my childhood - I watched him, and I felt like he was just talking to me.I know I'm not alone.Over the years, many people have parodied Mister Rogers, but - on those occasions when they met him, they were struck by his genuine sincerity.Mister Rogers, the world lost a very special fiend - no matter how old or young you were or are.I just watched on YouTube Fred Rogers' testifying in 1969 in front of congress about the importance for the continuing funding of PBS.The congressman who chaired apparently wasn't familiar with Mister Rogers, but, it was amazing to see how enwrapped he became by the caring, the love of Fred Rogers.I recommend anyone reading this to go and watch it.It might not be the most 'famous,' or well-known speech. It didn't stop a war. It didn't 'do' anything.Except, it did. And it showed that a quiet man could lead by example.It showed that anyone - man, woman, young or old - can do whatever they want. It doesn't take violence. It doesn't take threats.It just takes love, and a belief.I hope the lessons of Fred 'Mister' Rogers will live for a very long time.Fred 'Mister' Rogers believed in me - and YOU.Believe in oneself.Thank you, Fred Rogers
- U.N. Owen
