We can change the world by talking

One of my favorite themes of course.
Someone sent me this clip of Mr. Rogers testifying before Congress in 1969. Johnson had pushed heavily for public television and for adequate funding in 1967. Nixon wanted to cut the budget in half.

In this approx. 7 minute clip, see the power of simple, honest testimony to change the minds of the skeptical.

It isn't always that easy. But it is well to remember that it has happened, and therefore can happen.

We can change the world by talking.
