Won’t You Be My Neighbor

Won't You Be My Neighbor - The GBY

Every child needs to have someone that believes that they are special, even if this person is on TV.  For many children, this person was Mr. Rogers.  Won’t You Be My Neighbor confirms that Fred Rogers was completely sincere and focused on what was important to children.  He was proof that you could teach and entertain children with examples of genuine goodness.  He went out on a limb many times to address current events – divorce, assassination, racism, death just to name a few.  He communicated with the children with intelligence and compassion.  I cried from beginning to end.
