But Morgan Nevilleís documentary Wonít You Be My Neighbor
tackles him anyway, and comes to the benign conclusion that Fred Rogers
was, in fact, the guy he appeared to be. Itís a gentle film that doesnít
take a lot of risks but doesnít really need to. Fred Rogers was a kind and
gentle man who saw children as important, his work as ministry, and
kindness as essential to human existence.



Quote:
The film is structured around those big world events.
The first episodes of Mister Rogersí Neighborhood aired in 1968,
amid heated political debates about borders and wars. On the show,
King Friday (the stern monarch of the Land of Make-Believe) erected
a border fence of his own around his castle, and was convinced to take
it down only by messages of goodwill and peace that other characters
(both puppet and human) floated over the fence.

The parallels are almost too obvious (a border wall in the first week, 50
years ago?), but this really was the way the show started, and the film
carefully shows how Rogers went on to gently and subtly address other
cultural battles. In one segment that aired during pitched battles about
integration, he soaks his feet in a small wading pool outside his home,
then invites the black policeman to cool his feet in the pool with him.
Today, a shot of the two menís feet in the same pool may register as little
more than a nice image, but Wonít You Be My Neighbor splices the showís
footage together with images from that time of black children being
chased out of a public pool. Rogers knew what he was doing.

Real Man^^ Takes strength to admit that.

Pure Love will do that to you.

If I was POTUS every American would get a free ticket and I'd name a holiday after Mister Rogers so his brand of Heart is always remembered
