Happy Monday y'all!
As a child of the 1980’s, I love to reminisce over the shows I grew up with. I’m constantly commenting to my friends, that I wish there were more shows like them on television today. Alas, I have not found any new shows that come close in comparison. For the majority, I have found that the shows on T.V don’t have the life lessons they used to have. This is very disheartening if something is not changed. With everything that has happened in the world, maybe a network will want to bring back that old school innocence to its audiences again.
One of the shows that I hardly ever missed an episode of was Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. He encouraged all of us to not only be better neighbors, but better human beings. Each episode he taught:
For those of you who don’t know about Fred Rogers, he was quite the interesting individual. Fred was shy and bullied when he was young and absolutely hated violence. It was a result of his youth, that initially encouraged Mister Rogers to pursue seminary school. He never approved television shows that humiliated people. From that moment on, he set out to change the world, one young person at a time. Fred Rogers, of course, went on to create Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which aired nationally for over 30 years. Beginning in 1968 and continuing until (and beyond) the end of production in 2001, untold millions of children grew up under Mister Rogers’ steady gaze and faithful care. Those children now make up much of the American public, and now many of them are flocking to theaters to see the documentary of Misters Rogers’ life, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (Seven Lessons from Mister Rogers That Can Help Americans Be Neighbors Again).
I can’t help but wonder, what would he say to his viewers today? I’ll bet he would have a few pieces of wisdom to share. He had a way of expressing his views, but he was careful to not offend anyone. Compared to what’s on television now, it’s what made Fred’s show unique and timeless. Even though Mister Rogers is no longer with us, there is still so much the world can learn from him.
