Ageless Inspiration: Mister Rogers on Music and Lifelong Learning

Want to give yourself a big boost? Watch the beloved Fred Rogers speak to all ages in this new remixed video from PBS

Some things speak for themselves — and can keep doing it forever. With a little help from PBS Digital Studios, Fred Rogers delivers a deeply inspiring message that reveals his timeless genius. His rediscovered gems, remixed by Symphony of Science’s John D. Boswell, will make today a beautiful day in everybody’s neighborhood.

I love how this video depicts members of all generations singing and playing music in tandem.

The refrain alone is worth writing down and pinning to your bathroom mirror as a daily reminder:

“There’s so much in this world we can learn no matter how young or how old we are.”

“Sing together,” Rogers urges. Of course, we should do anything fun and meaningful together, in person, face to face.
