Fred Rogers Acceptance Speech – 1997 – YouTube.

If you want to see the power of words- listen to his words and watch the reaction of the audience to the speech!  I love Mr. Rogers and always have- even if he did have those scary puppets! The respect he gives to all- young and old is an inspiration! How can I be more respectful of young children, parents, co workers, and my loved ones? By creating an awareness of respect, will I embrace it in all that it means? It’s not easy to be respectful at all times…especially when you have different beliefs, values, cultures.  Maybe if we build an awareness within our school communities it will begin to ripple out.  I’m sure Mr. Rogers would agree! Do you agree?
