Usually when people do that “you’re special” crap I tend to roll my eyes.
But when Mister Rogers said it…
That’s because Mister Rogers meant it.
Mister Rogers genuinely cared about everyone and that’s why he will forever be the best. All of my feels.
True fact: He was considered to be one of the hardest people to interview, because he would turn it around and ask questions about the interviewer with genuine interest. Asking about their children and spouses, their dreams of the future, etc.
I found it irksome when, a few years back, PBS declared his show irrelevant and unfit to air. I know time marches on and teaching methods can change, but it still felt cold.
I love my skin!
Elmo likes your skin too Lupita. They don’t call him a “monster” for nothing. (thunder crashes, suspenseful music )
