I asked on the air recently, “Who was the nicest person ever?” It was my lead in to the story about the upcoming biopic about Mr. Rogers that will star Tom Hanks.
The story revolves around a cynical reporter who agrees to write a profile about Fred Rogers. The reporter winds up having his perspective on life changed.
Timing for a study of Fred Rogers could not be more timely. USA Today quoted Marielle Heller, who will direct the film, reminding us”of the transformative power of kindness and respect to heal and to unite.”
