Beauty in simplicity: Fred Rogers

It’s hard to believe this moment was almost 20 years ago, but I just saw this again this morning, and had to share it again.

I respected Fred Rogers’ work so much. Heck, I’ve even ferociously defended his legacy.

We were born and raised in the same area, and his approach to the world is one I aim to emulate, though I doubt I have his patience or sense of purpose.

He’s been gone for over 10 years, but his work is still all around us.

The night that Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and the soap community intersected. What he says in his speech is simply stunning – gorgeous in its humanity and its simplicity.
