Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Today would have been Fred Rogers, of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, 80th birthday. I remember when he first came to television on our local PBS station in Muncie, Indiana. Many people made fun of Mr. Rogers and his gentle ways but children loved him. My children loved him. He was a big part of their early childhood.

People are being asked to celebrate this day by wearing a sweater, which was part of Fred Rogers trademark look. You can read more about Fred Rogers and find information on a project to honor his memory by clicking on the image below or clicking here.

Happy Birthday Fred!

heading off to find a sweater!
