The Road to Sixty – Day 135
A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood
Sunday Night about 35 of the teens and adults went to see the “Mister Rogers” movie.
I will not expound on it here, but I want to tell you what it reminded me of.
Mister Rogers was one the few television shows I watched as a child. With 3 channels you didn’t get too much TV.
Of course, everyone remembered Sesame Street. But what about “Zoom” and “The Electric Company” which starred a couple of young actors named Morgan Freeman and Rita Moreno.
They were great shows with education values. They taught morals and respect, especially in a day and time when there was much stress in our country.
Maybe we will need to show those reruns….
Maybe we need a new Mister Rogers…
