Wow wow wow!
I just watched the documentary on Fred Rogers. I had very little clue he was such a radically present, nuanced, saintly progressive advocate for children!
And of course I cried miserably through two thirds of the movie. And I rarely ever cry – I’m lucky to cry once a year. I was weeping at this powerful, simple, divinely present being who spoke his truth to power whenever he got the chance. I am so glad to have been hit with this overwhelmingly beautiful wave of loving-kindness.
His simple presence and caring was felt by many many adults as well as children.
I suspect it will take a few days to fully start to digest it. One thing is certain now: I do not want to waste any time. It is time to benefit my community if I am able to.
Marvelous, wonderful, there aren’t enough superlatives! Go see it!
