Mister Rogers, IT, and Gratitude

This is Thanksgiving week in the US.  Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, because it's always been the least commercialized of our major holidays.  I love the time with family and friends, the great food, and the opportunity to reflect on the blessings of my life.

This year, I'd like to share a special video with you.  For our friends outside the US who aren't familiar with Mister Rogers, he was a television personality who focused on helping children.  He treated children with tremendous respect and was often an advocate for children.  Rogers was honored with numerous awards, including four Daytime Emmy Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997 from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2002.  This is a video of his acceptance speech for his Lifetime Achievement award.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Please know that I'm very thankful for you.
