I just went down a massive internet rabbit hole watching Mr. Rogers clips on YouTube. In this one, Mr. Rogers moved an entire room to tears when he got up to receive his Life Achievement Award at the Emmys in 1997. Instead of going on about his accomplishments and listing off a bunch of thank-yous, he asked everyone to take 10 seconds “to think of the people who have helped you become who you are, those who cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life.” “I’ll count the time,” he said gently, looking at his watch.

What a remarkable man! A ball of love!
