Fred McFeely Rogers was born on March 20, 1928. Today, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Day is celebrated on his birthday, especially in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Celebrations include singing the neighbor song and “It’s Such a Good Feeling,” helping out neighbors, and wearing a sweater.
Since I am one of the many, many kids that grew up watching (and loving) “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood,” I couldn’t let this day slip by. I’m sure there are many others that enjoyed his songs, sweaters, and visits to all the characters in Make Believe. I think my favorite part was always the field trips to see how things were made. What’s your favorite part?
“The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
