In today’s world we need more “neighbors” like this. It COULD be your child or your community or your country. So don’t sit back and watch, do something! As parents we all have he ability to create change.. one young mind at a time. Teach love, patience, kindness, TOLERANCE and ACCEPTANCE of those who are not like you. Love our differences, don’t fear them. Learn from our differences, don’t ignore them. 🙏
I loved this man! And I feel blessed that I grew up with his loving wisdom. If we all had a little more Mr Rogers in our life, the world would be a better place! This is another reason why I'll always support PBS! #mrrogers#lovingwisdom#truechristianvalues
"There was a story going around about the Special Olympics. For the hundred-yard dash, there were nine contestants, all of them so-called physically or mentally disabled. All nine of them assembled at the starting line and, at the sound of the gun, they took off. But one little boy didn't get very far. He stumbled and fell and hurt his knee and began to cry. The other eight children heard the boy crying. They slowed down, turned around, and ran back to him--every one of them ran back to him. The little boy got up, and he and the rest of the runners linked their arms together and joyfully walked to the finish line.
They all finished the race at the same time. And when they did, everyone in the stadium stood up and clapped and whistled and cheered for a long, long time. And you know why? Because deep down we know that what matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What really matters is helping others win, too, even if it means slowing down and changing our course now and then."
Thank you so much, Mr. Rogers 💙
(Apparently today is the anniversary of Mister Roger's Neighborhood but if it isn't, this is a dope photo and Mr. Rogers is a dope person anyways)
My @alfredyankovic Pop arrived! He joins #MrRogers and #RamonaFlowers in the spots of honor on top of my Blu-ray player... Also, big thanks to @aeronkasha for watering my plants and watching my apartment while I was on vacation! :) #WeirdAl#popvinyl#funkopop
“We can’t control tragedy but we can control our response to tragedy. It is like what #mrrogers says, when tragedy strikes, look for helpers” -Audrey, NFCC Clinical Director. 💚
In the midst of loss and violence, it is important to look for ways to reach out and support our community. Here in Houston, J.J Watt is a great example of that. We are grateful for his influence and leadership in our wonderful city.
Our hearts are with the Santa Fe community who have endured disastrous floods and a school shooting in the past several months. May we all strive to look for ways to demonstrate kindness, help and support to those around us. #santafestrong
Today marks the anniversary of “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood”. As a small team of people on a mission with nurses and doctors to help patients, we hope we can inspire others to join us. #thingsilearnedfrommrrogers
I cant believe I still get choked up when I think about this. As a boy, there was a person who had a particular influence on whom I became and how I treat others as a result.
Today is the anniversary of his show "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood". Here are a few things Mr. Rogers taught me:
1. The more you grow into a helpful person yourself, the happier you'll find this world of ours.
2. Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort.
3. Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.
4. Fame is a four-letter word. And like tape, or zoom, or face, or pain, or life, or love, what ultimately matters is what we do with it
5. The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only when its people feeling that they are worthwhile.
Most of all, when I felt most alone as a young aspiring scientist, he always said something that made me feel better: "there's no person in the whole world like you, and I like you just the way you are". Take some time today to bring out the best in those around you, help one another, and be kind.
Trust me, it goes a long way.
