    This was an excellent documentary about a man who shaped my own childhood in ways I probably don’t fully realize. Thank you for reminding us of Mr. Rogers' tremendous impact!
  • So endearing! We cried!

    About 10 minutes in....I started to cry, my tears just kept rolling, tears of gratitude. Hearing Mr. Roger's voice again and his appearance was just a reminder of how much I depended on him for security, love and reassurance from an adult. I had a lot of struggle as a kid and until I watched this documentary I had forgotten how much Mr. Roger's words and his daily presence helped me get through. My favorite line in this film is when Mr. Roger's says.."The space between the Television screen and the receiver is sacred space."

    Im so thankful for Mr. Rogers and his efforts. Im so thankful for his willingness to be open and vulnerable. The more time that passes the more we will understand what a gift these programs are and that because they exist there will always be hope for kindness to grow in young and old alike. As I watch these programs over again with my son I recieve new and lessons just as valuable as he receives. As unique as we all are, the lesson is just as unique and thats the beautiful part. Thats what I think he was trying to say. To me at least. That if you keep kindness in your heart, and your intention is understood and communicated honestly you will continue to conquer adversity and keep hope and positivity alive. I wish I could have had the chance to say thank you, but I have no dount that he knew. And as someone who never had that in my life, I am inspired to be that for my son. And that is priceless. And on that note, after watching this film I only love the man more. Aloha, Mister Rogers.
  • So inspiring.

    I wish Netflix and Amazon Prime could take a lesson from Mr Rogers on inspiring, uplifting entertainment rather than their approach to fill everything full of violence, nudity, sex and vulgar language. Enough of all their rated M programming!
