The Postal Service shares highlights from the recent Mister Rogers stamp dedication ceremony in a new video.
“Fred Rogers had an uncommon sense of how young children absorb ideas about civility and morality,” Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan says. “The gentle voice, the slow pace, the sense of security gave us the unmistakable feeling that Mister Rogers was a friend.”
The 1-minute, 25-second video also features remarks from Paul Siefken, president and chief executive officer of the Fred Rogers Co. Siefken quotes from a book Rogers wrote about the mail he received from his young fans: “‘Dear Mister Rogers,’ to me, is a way people have of saying, ‘Yes, I will be your neighbor.’ Just as our television program is a television visit, the mail is a letter visit.”
