Although this is a fun remix, it’s interesting to pause and give serious reflection on the language.  Think about Fred Rogers and his awareness of the power of his own words.  What was he communicating as he closed each show with the same line: “You always make it a special day and a special week for me, by just your being you. There’s only one person in this whole world like you; that’s you yourself, and I like you just the way you are. ” ?  What language do we use as we say goodbye to the children in our lives?
