It's a beautiful day in our West Canada Neighborhood and we wish the same for yours! November 13 is Cardigan Day. That's right, Mr. Roger's own day which represents what he is all about...Kindness!
If there are two things we love, it's cardigans and kindness. Today, we will share some ideas on how you can channel your inner Mr. Rogers and show you how to rock a signature cardigan. Extra points if you pair it with sneakers.
Who is Mr. Rogers?
"There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind."
For many children, Mr. Roger's Neighbourhood was a classic T.V. show they grew up watching. Can you watch the intro without singing or tearing up?
Mr Rogers (Fred) had a way of teaching about life moments or struggles in a calm manner, a way that made you stop and really listen. In his character, you believe that he was watching out for you and only wanted the best for you. That you were unique and special, and worthwhile. Mr Rogers addressed important topics of the era, a notable example was with Officer Clemmons in the height of racism in the United States. Watch for yourself below, and word of caution: lower your device's audio a bit as it starts of loud.
Fred wasn't playing a character- Mr Rogers. Who he was on the show was exactly the man he was off the show. Similarly to our last post on Ellen Degeneres, Fred Rogers believes that you should be kind to everybody. That is what Cardigan Day is all about.
There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.
On May 1st, 1969, Fred had to stand up against a decrease in funding for public broadcasting. Fred had a way of speaking that even the toughest judge couldn't help but listen. This video is proof that what Fred spoke, he believed.
