When I was a child, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood was a show I never missed. Fred Rogers could communicate the most complex topics to children in a way that they understood. I always felt like Mr. Rogers was talking just to me. Underneath that quiet, gentle demeanor was a powerful, persuasive spirit. Fortunately, that power was used for good.
In this video I found on YouTube, Mr. Rogers testifies before Congress on behalf of PBS at a time when the Nixon administration threatened to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Watch what happens.
