We never saw Mr Rogers here in Australia. I love this video:

Around the 4 minute mark I get teary eyed.

What a beautiful person. Somehow his earnestness makes his cheesiness acceptable. He even recites a poem!

I think that instead of spending money on gun control and armies, we should spend the money on supporting people with mental health issues. Fix the problem rather than wait for lives to be ruined by mentally ill people who can’t get the help they need.

Also… now that I am on my soapbox…. the papers are always attacking child services for not removing children from problem parents. Really child services are just the fall guy. We should be spending money helping these families who are poor, badly educated, without hope and with mental health issues. Not just have people take the kids away.
