Mr. Rogers Neighborhood is the first TV show I remember ever watching. I was so young that I wasn't even living in California yet. I thought he was actually a member of my family... a small grainy family member. I've been reading his book Life's Journeys According to Mr. Rogers: Things to Remember Along the Way. It's hopeful to think that someone this kind and selfless existed, it reminds us that as terrible as people can be, that we are also capable of being better, being good. I'm gonna go hug my childhood blanket now.
