Life As I Know It

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? {Movie}

I know the other day I shared my guilty pleasure TV, but I promise that I also watch quality programming as well! Recently the hubs and I finally watched Won’t You Be My Neighbor, the documentary about the beloved Mr. Rogers. Having a small child makes me appreciate Mr. Rogers’ work even more…he was a peaceful, thoughtful force in a time that loud and crazy cartoons were sweeping the airwaves for kids to consume. We need more of him in our kids’ lives, that’s for sure.

My biggest take away from the documentary was the way he embraced the notion that we are each created uniquely. In today’s culture, we have a negative connotation around the term “SNOWFLAKE,” because the notion is we are all special so the rules don’t apply, so on and so on. But Mr. Rogers reminded children that we are each created uniquely in the image of God. We ARE each unique and special BECAUSE God knit us to be so. It was a truly beautiful reminder.

Tell me…if you watched the documentary, what was your biggest take away?

  1. I loved this!! I watched it on a plane and yes, was crying in public.I loved his message that everyone is unique and that is a beautiful thing. And he did it in a way that children can understand. And even then, people thought there was something wrong with him and tried to find skeletons in his closet. What is wrong with people?!
