Mister Rogers' letter to 6-year-old Christopher Barranco

Gems unearthed like this letter, written by Mister Rogers to 6-year-old Christopher Barranco (today a grown-up Redditor) kindly turning down the child’s request to visit his house, continues to reinforce my belief that Mister Rogers might be one of the kindest and most thoughtful human beings to have ever walked this planet. After receiving this letter, Christopher’s father wrote a reply to thank Mister Rogers who in turn wrote back. Filing this under “Why Mister Rogers is Awesome.” It’s a hefty file.
