Mr. Fred Rogers would have turned 89 years old today (March 20). With political fights on our Facebook feeds every day and just dealing with life’s daily struggles, we wanted to take a short trip down memory lane with some of the best lessons that many of us learned from Mr. Rogers. We may be adults, but we could all probably still use help from one of our most beloved national treasures. 

LESSON: Always be true and honest with yourself

LESSON: Human beings learn best and most from other human beings

LESSON: Don't expect too much from yourself

LESSON: Don’t be superficial​ in life

LESSON: Be mindful of your impact on your community and those around you at all times

LESSON: Love is a state of perfect caring

LESSON: Don’t Be Afraid to Cry

Mr. Rogers Says Goodbye: We also dug up this clip where Mr. Rogers offered a message to his adult fans. This was recorded just a few months before Mr. Rogers passed away in 2003.

We miss you, Mr. Rogers!
