Mister Rogers Had One Last Lesson for These Celebrities – Watch Ten Seconds of Thoughtful and Tearful Thanks!
Fred Rogers spent 33 years telling children that they were special, teaching them that each and every one of us has a purpose and value. Coming from the mouth of the genuinely friendly and humble Presbyterian minister, from his relative youth into his gray old age, the statements never seemed trite or coddling. So it was that even as Sesame Street taught us the alphabet and Bill Nye taught us about air pressure, Mister Rogers was our most beloved neighbor and the one who taught us the most true and valuable lessons. Even in adulthood, we still have lessons to learn – and teach us he did, right through his acceptance speech for a Lifetime Achievement Award and the 1997 Emmys. See room full of the most respected names in show business cry and stay silent to honor this man, and take the ten second lesson to heart: you’re all special, and we all have someone to thank.
