“I always wondered why God was supposed to be a father," she whispers. Fathers always want you to measure up to something. Mothers are the ones who love you unconditionally, don't you think?”

Mr. Rogers was a much beloved character that many of us grew up with or have at least heard of. The tv show he created and starred in, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood lasted for 33 years, quite a run. He was an ordained Presbyterian minister and also quite handy at the piano as he created most of the shows music.
Sorry to deflate all your hopes but Mr. Rogers, Fred Rogers, was not in the military, not a sniper and had no tattoos. Look it up and check out Snopes if you like. He was very inclusive, liberal by most Southern Evangelical standards but mostly he was just kind.
He liked Eddie Murphy's SNL take on him, he was groundbreaking in many of the avenue's his show took. His mother made all those sweaters he wore on the show. He was a vegetarian, and unless somebody has something new I haven't read I've never found anyone that has encountered him to have anything bad to say about him. He was genuinely nice all around. Hard to imagine, harder to come across in this day in age.
He has a stamp commemorating his tv show and him that comes out today, go pick it up at your local post office. Mr. Rogers truly made life beautiful. Make today the same for others.
