PBS' Beloved Mister Rogers Dies at 74
A very, very sad story to report today.. CNN is reporting that Mister Rogers, everyone's favorite singing child psychologist (and dear friend), died this morning at his house in Pittsburgh, of the stomach cancer he had been battling.Mister Rogers taught us many things (I've written an entry on the subject in my Livejournal here, if anyone cares to read it) - how to be kind to others, how to express and understand our feelings, and that it's OK to be ourselves. (I still think it was identifying with Daniel Striped Tiger that helped me become a furry =^_^=..)
He will be sadly missed, and the world will be a dimmer place without that light that burned so brightly, and served as a beacon to us all, a sign that somewhere, somehow, there was someone who could make things All Right.
Goodbye, old friend. You were special just the way you were.
So, let's make the most of this beautiful day.
Since we're together we might as well say:
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
