Won't you be my neighbor?
Last year, a documentary about Fred Rogers outperformed anyone's expectations. It currently sits at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. Now there's another movie coming out about Mr. Rogers, this time starring Tom Hanks. It's nearly certain to be another hit. Why? Everyone loves Fred Rogers. Literally everyone. I've never met a single person who would say something negative about Mr. Roger... even online, where people are far more prone to unkindness. That's because such an example of pure, selfless, genuine kindness is rare in a world that craves it so much. But that's why we're here. Deciding to help is so simple, but it's the most important decision of all. This week, let's go be the type of neighbor Mr. Rogers knew we could be.
