On February 19, 1968, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood debuted on Public Television. My sister was four and I was ten. Mr. Rogers wore zip up sweaters and sneakers and talked about feelings and make-believe. He was nerdy and his songs were corny, but we liked him just the way he was.
This week marks 50 years since Fred Rogers made his way into our homes and our hearts. The lessons he taught me then are just as relevant today. As a matter of fact, Ron and I have applied many of his philosophies to our Eagle business!
So, thanks, Mr. Rogers, for sharing your kindness, your neighborhood and yourself with us!!
