Welcome To The Neighborhood: A Mister Rogers Tribute Podcast

Episode Seven: The Gentleness of Fred Rogers


“Most of us, I believe, admire strength. It’s something we tend to respect in others, desire for ourselves, and wish for our children. Sometimes, though, I wonder if we confuse strength and other words–like aggression and even violence. Real strength is neither male nor female; but is, quite simply, one of the finest characteristics that any human being can possess.”

-Fred Rogers

From The World According to Mister Rogers
