Without public media, my family would not be who we are today.
Growing up in a rural state, we didn’t have wide opportunities for concert performances. So we listened and watched, learned and loved the exposure to the arts.
Public media has been a safe harbor for our daughter as she grew. In public media children’s programs, we knew she could learn about the world in interesting ways through caring people.
Thank you, Mister Rogers, for taking us on field trips to learn how things worked, and for providing us care givers with messages we can share with children that are still relevant today.
Thank you, Mister Rogers and public media, for educating, informing and inspiring our lives.
