RIP Mr. Rogers
Fred Rogers, a fixture of my childhood and many other's, passed away today at the age of 74. Every American under the age of 40 is in mourning today as a piece of our past has been laid to rest. I think we can all remember his invitation to the neighborhood, along with his trademark cardigan sweater. He reinforced universal values of respect, kindess and love of oneself and of others. And he practiced what he preached on the show, noting in 1993, "It's not the honors and not the titles and not the power that is of ultimate importance. It's what resides inside."
Farewell, Mr. Rogers, you will be sadly missed.
