Weekend Self-Care: The Brilliance of Fred Rogers
Like most millennials, I will always have a place in my heart for Fred Rogers and the ingenious, inventive world he created for me and my peers. Although I can't remember specific episodes of his PBS television program, I know that Mr. Rogers' genuine empathy for his fellow human beings permeated its way into my very impressionable young mind. When I think back on my formative years, I can't help but think that part of my growing empathy arose from the lessons of Mr. Rogers. That was his true brilliance. He did what he did knowing that he was impacting the future. We have millions of people today who share Mr. Rogers' empathy and at this particular time in our nation's history, we need that empathy now more than ever.
As always, take care of yourselves and your loved ones this weekend. It's what Mr. Rogers would have wanted.
