Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

On March 20th, we set aside a day to remember and honor Fred Rogers. Fred Rogers was the host of a popular childhood show, Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. The first episode aired on PBS on February 19, 1968, and ran until 2001. Mr. Rogers was iconic for his message on the importance of being a kind neighbor.

“All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we’re giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors – in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.” Spoken by Fred Rogers.

Each one of us has a role to play in our communities. Our places of worship, business, our towns and places we live such as Copperfield Hill, are all opportunities to be givers and receivers of kindness. Each of us are created with unique gifts. We are all important. Every person has a role to play in keeping our communities safe, loving and a special place to call “home”.

At Copperfield Hill we are all part of a family. Neighbors are family. Join me in seeking ways to do something nice for others. Take a moment to appreciate the little things or think about how something you take for granted was made. These are ways we can be a great neighbor.
