Won't You Be My Neighbor?

If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.
~Fred Rogers

Spending time with Mr. Rogers today. Have you seen the video where he argues for not cutting the budget for PBS? Makes me sigh for better days, but Mr. Rogers is still comforting even today. As he said, "Would you just take, along with me, ten seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are? Those who have cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life?" I'm taking more than ten seconds to think about you, Mr. Rogers.

Here's another quote from him:

When we love a person, we accept him or her exactly as is: the lovely with the unlovely, the strong with the fearful, the true mixed in with the fa├žade, and of course, the only way we can do it is by accepting ourselves that way.
~Fred Rogers
