Of Your Mind
young people grew up watching Mister Rogers. I have sometimes wondered
what effect his childlike wonderment of this world we live in, combined
with gentle mannerly interaction with others would have on those kids
when they grew up.
a child who watched Mister Rogers regularly, fail to be a thinking,
caring, polite adult? Is it like the old saying about taking a horse to
water, but you can’t make him drink?
I have known
people 20 years younger than me, who grew up watching Mister Rogers,
and Sesame Street. Some of them did not turn out to be conscientious,
Some of them
turned out to be sociopath career criminals, yet they have fond
memories of time spent in front of the TV, watching, and interacting
with Mister Rogers.
I guess it ‘takes all kinds’, as I have heard said. I didn’t know that it was a version of this line from Don Quixote; de todo ha de haber en el mundo.
The reason the topic of today’s blog is Mister Rogers has to do with the video of the day.
of those sliced up, remixed, auto-tuned, video’s that I normally avoid,
but it presents Mister Rogers, gently encouraging young people to spend
time, In The Garden Of Your Mind. I liked it.
