Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood
« on: November 22, 2019, 05:39:31 pm »
I just saw the new Tom Hanks movie about Mr. Rogers.  Great movie!  Tom Hanks is perfectly cast as Mr. Rogers, and plays him magnificently.  The most important line in the movie is one that isn't even spoken: the unspoken response to a question.  It really gives an impression of the man.

If you want to get an impression of the real Fred Rogers when he wasn't doing a children's TV show, look for a YouTube video of him testifying in 1969 before Senate hearings on the budget for PBS.  You'll see how accurately Tom Hanks portrays him.

I believe that Tom is a remote cousin of Fred.

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
