A Lesson From Mr Rogers

I stumbled across this video of the late Mr. Rogers speaking before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications and Chair, the late John Pastore (D-RI) in 1969. He was asking for a $20 million grant for the Corporation For Public Broadcasting. The chairperson, originally opposed to the idea and a bit hostile, was touched by Mr Rogers speech and gave him the funding. Not only is his speaking style moving and uplifting, but his message is wonderful.

Please take a few minutes to watch his speech, parents especially I feel can benefit from hearing Mr. Rogers perspective on the importance of feelings and emotions in the home.

    Really a great video. I haven’t actually seen a Senator change his mind on camera before!
