Comments: MR. ROGERS

I was at a course by the Human Performance Institute, and they had a video of Mr. Rogers when he received a lifetime achievement award at the Emmy's. They showed some highlights that were amazing. He made everyone feel that they were the only person there. He had a little boy on who was severely disabled and in a wheelchair. They had a chat, with Mr. Rogers on his knee at the boy's eye level. Then he began to sing. And even with cameras rolling, the little boy looked like he felt special, and began to sing along with Mr. Rogers. OK I am not doing it justice, but it was an amazng moment.

He was a good man and a celebrity - this means there will always be some idiots who have to try to run his character into the ground. Here's a link to the snopes piece on him:

I was never a big fan of Mr. Rogers, my kids watched him for a time and he had a good show. But it really makes me want to smack people who start these kind of rumors. *sigh*
