DANIEL'S NEW YEARS PRAYER

Dear God in Heaven, there're lots of things
We want to thank You for.
Our health, our friends, our families,
Our country, and so much more.

You've blessed us with a strong hope
Like Spring after the snow;
You've given us a living faith
That makes us grow and grow.

You've shown us how to live a life
That thinks of others first;
You've played the part of Love in us
A Love that knows no thirst.

You've strengthened us when we were weak
And humbled us when strong.
You've pointed out the way of right
And said when we were wrong.

So as we come to a new year
We pray right from the start
That peace and love may live again
In everybody's heart.

And as we live with others
May we always try to see
The bery bery best in them
For that's really part of Thee.

Amen.

Happy new year, Neighbors! During the Children's Corner era, Daniel Striped Tiger offered young viewers a thoughtful prayer for entering into a new year.

Thank you, Carol Spinney, for your years of dedication to creating quality children's television on Sesame Street. You will be missed.

Caroll Spinney, the legendary puppeteer behind beloved Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, died today, December 8th 2019, at age 85 at his home in Connecticut, after living with Dystonia for some time.

Since 1969, Caroll’s kind and loving view of the world helped shape and define Sesame Street. His enormous talent and outsized heart were perfectly suited to playing the larger-than-life yellow bird who brought joy to countless fans of all ages around the world, and his lovably cantankerous grouch gave us all permission to be cranky once in a while. In these characters, Caroll Spinney gave something truly special to the world. With deepest admiration, Sesame Workshop is proud to carry his legacy – and his beloved characters – into the future. Our hearts go out to his beloved wife, Debra, and all of his children and grandchildren. We will miss him dearly.

Latrobe-area writer focuses on Fred Rogers’ kindness, hometown impact

"“Growing Up” is actually three books in one, Rodell explains: “One book is how Latrobe influenced Fred Rogers, the other is how the adult Fred Rogers influenced Latrobe, and the third one is how both of them influenced me."

https://triblive.com/local/westmoreland/latrobe-area-writer-focuses-on-fred-rogers-kindness-hometown-impact/

Beloved children’s television host Fred Rogers achieved his greatest effect on others by being “defiantly kind,” Latrobe-area writer Chris Rodell asserts. Rodell offers an example — a 1995 encounter with Latrobe native Rogers that lifted the spirits of a younger man — in his new book relea...

We remember this! 😍 Did any of you share an act of kindness with Latrobe Art Center as a part of #143DayInPA, or during 2019 Mister Rogers Family Day?

Remember when we asked people to share their acts of kindness for #143DayInPA (waaaaay back on May 23)? We received a whole bunch of responses, not only on #143DayInPA, but all the way through Mister Rogers Family Day on June 8!

See what acts of kindness our neighbors shared with us!

Our apologies to Lisa, who sent this message and photo to us over one month ago. But it's never too late to share a good neighbor story, right?

"I’m sending this to you because these two are absolute miracles! They met [on June 8, 2019] for the first time at the festival [Mister Rogers Family Day] and both had brain surgeries within a week of each other in March 2017. Both nearly died. They live within blocks of one another in Latrobe, and the unplanned meeting today at the celebration just felt like neighbor love ❤️. It was very special and I wanted to share and to thank you!"
