Tribute to Mr. Rogers
« on: February 27, 2003, 07:26:15 AM »
Mr. Rogers, the popluar host of the long-running children's television show, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, died early this morning due to complications with his stomach cancer.  If any of you grew up watching his show like I did, you can understand that his shows opened up a whole world of imagination while at the same time, instilling moral values that will be used throughout life.  He will be sorely missed.

R.I.P.

Fred Rogers

Indeed, the human race is now less for this loss.

I remember when I was younger I used to watch his show all the time.  He used to teach me almost everything.  That man is one of the best people in the world.  He taught a lot of people and he still will.  May god let his sould rest in peace,

MR. ROGERS........I SALUTE YOU.....

He taught me how to tie my shoes.  Thanks Mr. Rogers.  I also salute you.

In another board, what I was expecting to see here SOMEWHERE, I would've seen: some loser being irreverant and disrespectful about Mr. Rogers, exercising his "rights of speech."  I don't see this here, I'm very happy to announce.

I thought the guy was great, frankly, and at the very least he was a much better counter to crap like Barney if only because he treated kids like kids, not idiots.  And he was human, which Barney is not.

But more than that, he was just a good man, I think.  I watched him a lot growing up, and he just always had a nice, pleasant show, and sometimes you even learned a little something--but it never felt like "education," thankfully.  It was just nice.

May he rest in peace, and may his family be proud of him and consoled that he did so much good.

And Ace, this may sound very weird, and maybe I'm just going through a twentysomething mid-life crisis, but reading that he taught you to tie your shoes actually got me a little bit.  Seriously, that's really something, isn't it?

I loved Mr Rogers.  I work at the Airport and that is all anyone has been talking about.  Almost every customer that comes up has said "Did you hear that Mr. Rogers died?"  Its amazing how many lives have been affected by him.  My friend said that her Step-father actually lived in the same neighborhood as Mr. Rogers when he was I kid.  I just find that funny how Mr. Rogers always says "Won't you be my neighbor?" and my friend's Step-dad actually was his neighbor.  Mr. Rogers was  the epitome of what our generation should be.  Ask anyone about their earliest memories and I bet they name "watching Mr. Rogers" as one of them.
it was time for a change.
