During the summer we may travel and meet new people and see new places. We may read a book and discover people and places and never leave home. We may also have a chance to visit an old friend and neighbor. I am referring to Fred Rogers. We welcomed “Mr. Rogers” into our homes in 1968 -- 50 years ago. Children watching TV found themselves in a neighborhood of goodness and kindness. Children imagined that Mr. Rogers was talking to them personally. He was! During the civil rights era when black children were denied entry into public pools, Mr. Rogers invited a black police officer, a regular visitor to his neighborhood, to soak his feet in a tub with him. Then Mr. Rogers dried his feet with a towel. Once, the Tiger puppet (Mr. Rogers’ inner child) sang: “Sometimes I wonder if I’m a mistake.” Mr. Rogers always tried to reassure children and treat each child (every child listening and watching at home) with respect and dignity.  You’ll be able visit Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood again by seeing the film documentary: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

It is on my Netflix queue.

Summer is a good time for simple acts of kindness.

Visit us in the Church of the Annunciation, Elma.
