My Hero: Mr Rogers

I did not grow up on Mr Roger's Neighborhood. I wish I did. Having seen a few episodes on YouTube and reading about it on Wikipedia, I almost feel like I had a deprived childhood. (I kid.)

This piece on Mr Rogers is really beautiful. (It's a bit long, but please don't tldnr it. It's worth it, especially if you've been following this blog)

And here's the second most favourited comment on MetaFilter, defending Mr Rogers.

What most fascinates me about Mr Rogers, is that he was just so constant. The following tribute video sums it up nicely:

Moreover, the following testimony in front of the House Subcommittee will be one of my favourite YouTube clips of all time.

O that I wish I would find the one Passion in life and that I would, like Mr Rogers, stick it to the very end. TYG!
