This article, beautifully constructed and written, is as important as any you will read today.
Now, more than ever, the lessons of Fred Rogers can help immeasurably as we collectively try to deal with present and future difficulties. They are coming.

Hi nighthawk:
Yes, this is a lovely article. The future needs people who like people, and people of the movie screen or cell phone screen just aren’t real enough. Somehow a face to face conversation is the best way to spend time. When that happens, it can be a beautiful day in the neighborhood everyday. : )


In Mr. Roger’s day, the stroller was not so ubiquitous. While today, the quality of screen time is discussed, I’ve seen little mention of the effects of spending so much time in the stroller during the early developmental, As opposed to being held and carried by real humans.

Bring back the Snuggles!
