(I’m not sure what being American had to do with it, but) I think this is the first time a Cracked.com article has made me cry.
Sit down, neighbor, and hear of a man who did not conquer the world, but did it one better; he reminded us that the world needs unity rather than conquest. He walked among us as a man, although he was a hand-to-God saint. They say the difference between a saint and a psychopath is empathy, and Mr. Fred Rogers had an ocean of it, which makes him either the sanest man in history or the craziest hero we ever had.
A kind, loving, smart, real, hardworking, strong, steadfast, and really Christlike man if ever there was one. There’s such a hunger in this world for goodness and gentleness and sincerity, and he invited us all to the feast. Thank you, Mister Rogers. 143.
“The work you’ve been doing, that looks like no work at all to society, is some of the most important work that you’ll ever do.”
Like this. Like this a lot.
In India, a snake protects two pups for 48 hours after they accidentally fall into a hole. At first it was thought that she wanted to attack them, but then noticed she was caring for the puppies. When rescued, the snake was released into a forest.
Nature is whoa, unpredictable.
LOOK AT THE PUPPIES. LOOK AT THEM.
