This Day in History March 20, 1928

On this date in 1928, my favorite children’s television icon was born–Fred Rogers.  When I was growing up, he had an incredible impact on me, and I read a biography him that really inspired me.  I continued to watch him (on the sly) through junior high, high school, and even as an adult.  I e-mailed a fan letter to him before his death in 2003, and I even received an actual reply back.  I told him I was praying for him, and he said I was in his prayers as well.  That truly meant a lot to me at the time.  I think I still have that somewhere.

I so wish that children’s television was like it was back then.  Oh well.
