Lessons from Mr. Rogers

Copper State of Mind

Many of us grew up watching programming on PBS – “Sesame Street,” “Electric Company” and of course, “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.” I recently saw the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor.” Co-workers, family and friends talk about the impact he had not only on the children who tuned in daily, but on them, too.

Dealing with topical issues – the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, the Challenger explosion, civil rights, disabilities, among others, he taught us the importance of being kind to each other and while the nation changed around him, he stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood.
