Mr. Rodgers- featured image

America’s Television favorite, Mr.Rogers, had always taught people the importance of being kind and loving to others and yourself through his work. He once said,

“I went into television because I hated it so, and I thought there’s some way of using this fabulous instrument to nurture those who would watch and listen.”

So, he used entertainment as a great tool and instrument to spread moral values and lift people who felt hatred, angry and helplessness because of some tragedy.

Rogers emphasized taking care of childhood because it’s the age when you are raw and delicate. He knew the importance of kindness and love because he didn’t receive it in his youth. Yes, his childhood was not smooth. He was shy, introverted, and overweight, and had asthma. People used to tease him for being overweight. These things kept him confined to the house most of the time, making him feel lonely. He became friends with himself and would create his world in his bedroom.

Talking about his great work, Mr. Rogers helped his colleagues develop children’s shows. He also created puppets, characters, and music for shows that have inspired millions of his fans and admirers. One of the greatest television shows that attracted many people was Mr.Rogers’ Neighborhood. It was his debut and had earned him so much fame for giving incredible lessons to the world and bringing joy to society. His song, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” spread the message of helping and being friendly with people.

Rogers had always encouraged children’s education in his work and personal life. He was empathetic and compassionate and motivated people to be themselves and embrace their individuality. His plays took people from a negative view towards the world that seems scary to the optimistic view full of opportunities, different colors, and love. It inspires people to live a positive and meaningful life.

Though one of the greatest legendary television stars of his time, Mr. Rodgers is not between us physically; his teachings will keep us inspired through the ever-living work he has left behind. With the great hope that we will preserve the very essence of humanity, I want to share some inspiring Mr. Rodgers quotes.
