"Why in the world couldn’t we use this thing called television for the broadcasting of grace through the land?" — Fred Rogers
It’s Friday night, and there’s nothing on T.V. It’s a good time to sit back and watch a YouTube video that might just make you cry.
My buddy Andy Wibbels turned me on to this video of Mr. Fred Rogers receiving his Life time Achievement Award.
I never watched Mr. Rogers as a kid. I was I had. He instilled confidence in children. He was a man of amazing love and acceptance who made children feel their worth and their uniqueness, and their power to live lives of contribution and joy.
Watch it all the way through to where he actually accepts his award. What a beautiful man.
