“It Is You I Like” – Fred Rogers and a Friend Are Reunited 20 Years Later

In 1981, Fred Rogers had a simple, yet profound message for Jeff Erlanger, a boy who was permanently disabled during a complex surgery.  The sincere positivity of both Jeff and Mister Rogers shone through.

“Fast forward” some 20 years latter, and Fred has a surprise reunion with Jeff, now a young man.  Said Jeff. “You know, when you tell people that ‘It’s you I like,’ you know that you really mean it.  And tonight, I want to let you know that, on behalf of millions of children and grown-ups, it is you that I like.”

Just recently, the online magazine and blog, Petzoid, reminded us how Fred Rogers has touched the lives of so many children, who as adults never forget the kindness of this of a very special man.
