Today, March 20th would have been Mr. Roger's 85th birthday. I try to embody his spirit by reaching out to children, giving them my time, my attention and my support. The following quotes resonate with me, so in honor of a great advocate for children, I've put them in this backstory.
"Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life," he once wrote, "is a hero to me."
"When we treat children's play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that's to be found in the creative spirit. It's the things we play with and the people who help us play that make a great difference in our lives." -Fred Rogers
