    Congratulations to Tom on his excellent work. I saw and liked the movie called "Terminal" which presents an immigrant stop in the middle of his journey. In this movie, we learn the value of immigrants as a champion worker but mainly as a human being because we are part of the whole world like brothers and sisters. Another shot we have in this last movie about Fred Roger. We learn the value of respect to children since the first phases from boy to man and girl to women. Certainly, we will have a better society and better human beings to take care of each other and help us in this life. Thanks, another time to Tom and Fred for their invaluable work for humanity.

            Mr. Rogers taught me how to tie my shoes. Not my parents.

              You know Jimmy, I do not watch many late night shows, since Johnny retired and Dave became a Confederate General, Colbert and Fallon and Jimmy and that Leno Guy (stick to cars) and Seth and David and Conan don't really keep my interest very much, in small increments I can take them, but you have started to grow on me because you don't try to sound like Trump when you mock him, at least not that i have noticed, I can't stand that guy, the way he looks the way he talks the way he uses his hands, his idiotic tweets for twits, how anyone in the USA voted for that dumbfuck I will never understand, which leads me to believe, MONEY BUYS ELECTIONS. Only 3 presidents I can think of were Carter and Ford and LBJ that were put in office without money and Carter was put there to be a patsy by big money.

                If you want a child to respect you and listen then get on their level, if you want them to fear you talk down to them. Mr. Rogers was talking to the children on their level.

                  Tom Hanks is his biggest fan. He has had the luck to be in some well writen movies, but he plays the same guy in all the movies no big streach for him to actually act.

                            Tom Hanks is one of my all time favorite male actors since he acted in his early twenties. He is a gifted actor and comedian. I LOVE him.

None of which will go towards the children or causes Mr. Rogers spent a lifetime promoting & ministering to.
