Whenever people ask me who my role model is, I'm usually a little stumped. There are a lot of famous people whom I admire or who inspire me. But there aren't so many people that I would actually model my life after. I usually end up choosing someone in my family (which is a very good choice!), but I often wish I could mention someone everyone will know. Over the past few months though, I've come across a few internet gems that have reminded me of a famous person I would be ecstatic to be compared to...
Fred Rogers (<--worth clicking)
If you have anything close to affection for Fred Rogers and the love he brought into your childhood, this is a video you must watch. I chuckled a bit the first time through, but I was teary-eyed by the end of it and it's still getting me every time! (Plus, it's got an irresistible beat.)
I also really enjoyed this one:
It's so stunning to see such gentleness and sincerity in someone. I read that he was inspired to get into television because he saw a cartoon where a character was hit in the face with a pie, and he was disturbed that children were being taught to find humor in another's humiliation. Thank you for being a good neighbor and the best role model, Mr. Rogers.
Who is your role model?
