Mr. Rogers on Autotune
Barbara, this was by far one of the best things I've seen in a long while. I grew up watching the show in the early days, the 70's. and watched it again with a new perspective while raising my kids. I used to sit with them everyday and watch it. Sometimes I think I watched it more for me. He said things that I needed to hear. I think it his gentle ways helped me to be a better parent and to understand my children better. I am a native Pittsburgher, and in our town he was (still is) an icon. But all those who knew him personally say the way he was on his show is the way he was in real life. He impacted so
many people. The ripple effect is still being felt. I watched this with my 5 kids today and they thought it was cool. especially because it brought back good memories for them. My son who has ADHD cried because he said that he felt like he used to have ideas in the garden of his mind, but not so much anymore. He really struggles with his behavior and
Is very down on himself. I often wonder what will help him see himself any differently. Anyways.....thanks for posting this. As you can probably tell, it hit home for me in more than one way.

I'm 37 years old and tears are running down my cheeks. The world still needs Mr. Rogers.
