Today we stop and pay tribute to the memory of a man who it can be argued was one of the most powerful and positive influences on a generation of young people who were raised in front of their televisions over the last 40 years. A man who possessed a unique gift that allowed him to communicate with children universal concepts of friendship, kindness, sharing, and love in a truly special way. Yet while the show was geared towards children there was never any doubt that he was talking with the parents as well. Teaching us how to communicate with our children, how to understand and see the world thru their own eyes, a gift that too many adults have lost. Today would have been Mr. Rogers 80th Birthday. Happy Birthday Fred! We miss you and will never forget the times we all shared. Lets make the most of this beautiful day, since we're together we might as well say, would you be mine, could you be mine, won't you be my neighbour?
