When Mr. Rogers Went to Washington

I just had a most amazing and wonderful post show up in my reader. I want to share it with you. It deserves to be shared again and again and again. Some of you may think it corny or trite. I beg to differ. This is a man speaking from the depth of his soul. And what he has to say is worth taking to heart.

The first clip is of Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers, testifying at a Senate hearing in 1969 for support of public broadcasting. The second clip is his acceptance speech at the 1997 Daytime Emmy awards.

Oh that there were more Fred Rogers in the world!
