Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

This documentary has three priceless moments. #1-The numerology of 143 which represents the number of letters in “I” “LOVE” “YOU”. This was Fred Roger’s weight for his entire life. #2 – François Clemmons who played the policeman was gay and black. The scenes of them sharing a wading pool in reaction to pool segregation is spiritually devastating. The film explains how Fred learned to accept Francois’s gayness slowly and gracefully. #3 The touching song where the lion puppet asks if he is fake and not wanted. Your tears will drain you when you hear the response.
