Our neighbor didn’t die, he was just needed someplace else.
He took a moment that was about recognizing him and turned it into a moment to recognize everyone who was there and everyone who made it possible for him to do what he does. If you want a perfect example of why he is so fondly remembered and such a great person, it’s tough to find a better one than this.
Mister Rogers is like, the one person where the more I find out about him, the more I love about him. It’s such sweet relief, rather than being disappointed in a celebrity when you find out more about their personal life, to go “my God, what a thoroughly good human.”
Always reblog Mister Rogers
One of the true wizards and healers.
I’m not crying i just accidentally poured salty water into my eye cavities
I didn’t pour salty water into my eye cavities I am actively crying.
Mister Rogers was my childhood hero, and this is why.
After my mom died, I sent him a letter- saying how we had always watched his show together when I was little and how much he meant to me and her.
He sent me back the kindest note thanking me for allowing him to be part of our family and sent condolences about mom.
I lost it at some point, which kills me, but I was so incredibly touched.
He will always feel like a part of my family :)
