Mister Rogers was my hero, when I was young. I loved that it felt as if he was talking directly to me, when I watched him on our little black and white television set. His voice was soothing and he always encouraged me to use my imagination, my heart and my mind to do good things.
As an adult, I just may appreciate him even more than I did when I was 5. This was much more than just entertainment for my generation.
I was excited to learn that there will be a movie about my hero and can’t wait to see it. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? will be in theaters beginning June 8th, 2018. Here is a preview to whet your appetite!
