fredDear Mr. Rogers,

When I was lit­tle I was all about watch­ing your show. You were just so calm, and kind, and lov­ing. I learned a lot from you. I think you were prob­a­bly my sec­ond best exam­ple of patience and kind­ness in my young life. (My moth­er was num­ber one of course.)

It may have just been a TV show, but Mr. Roger’s Neigh­bor­hood helped me become the per­son I am today. I am pret­ty sad that kids the­se days might grow up not know­ing who you are. Who will be their exam­ple of unend­ing patience and kind­ness?

Thanks for every­thing you taught me,
Athena
