Won't You Be My Neighbor?

This Thursday, March 20, marks the day that would have been Mr. Fred Rogers' 80th birthday. You remember Mr. Rogers, right? He entered his small house, changed his sneakers and his sweater, then fed the fish, and took us by trolley to The Neighborhood of Make Believe. There we visited with King Friday and the other friends.

Mr. Rogers talked about all sorts of things, always in a calm, gentle voice. He also wore the best sweaters! It was rumored his mother knit all of those cardigans. I will admit here that cried when he died in 2003.

In honor of Fred Rogers, won't you please, won't you please, please won't you be my neighbor? Join me in wearing a sweater on Thursday, March 20, 2008. We'll all celebrate Mr. Rogers' birthday in sweater style!
