Fred McFeely Rogers

I’ve heard it said that you should never choose your heroes from among the living – that way they never have the opportunity to disenchant you. This man died just a couple of years ago and the more I learn about him the more he becomes my hero. He lived what he believed and softly touched thousands of lives and made us believe we are special.

The thought of the day comes from Mr. Rogers.
As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside that is unique to all time.
It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.

~ Fred McFeely Rogers (1928-2003)
