I presented this lecture on December 16th, 2019 in Concord, New Hampshire at the Bank of New Hampshire stage. It includes so many of the things we all need to talk about, just as Mr. Rogers invited us to do every day as children.
Fred Rogers was my first professional mentor. I was two years at the time his show on PBS, “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood” began. Fifty years later, his words and wisdom only increase in both their gravitas and their simplicity.
I’m not affiliated with Fred Rogers productions in any way. But I highly recommend consulting Fred Rogers Productions, whose mission continues to preserve Fred’s legacy and create quality children’s programming as well as the Fred Rogers Center.
