Fearless Neighbor
WatchMeDraw video:
5-min version: youtu.be/3bjzyGDYpls

I call this one, "Fearless Neighbor." And by "fearless," I don't mean "not feeling fear." I mean "not acting in fear."

I never watched Mister Rogers' Neighborhood as a kid, so I didn't know much about it, until I saw Won't You Be My Neighbor in theatre last year. And lemme tell you ... that is a man of true character.

The gentleness of his show conceals not just the importance of it, but the bravery behind it. How many parents do you know, who are afraid to talk about certain things with children because they're difficult subjects? The problem with that is, it doesn't remove the child's need to process that subject. It only removes their ability to process it correctly. Mr. Rogers understood this.

The documentary also mentioned that some people have criticized Mr. Rogers because they think telling children they're special encourages them to be lazy. Well, telling children they're special is a way of acknowledging their unique value as individuals; and Mr. Rogers was very explicit that he intended it as an expression of love. Laziness is a lack of discipline. You don't teach discipline by withholding love. That is ... frankly psychopathic.

I didn't need Mister Rogers' Neighborhood as a child because I was very blessed with parents who gave me everything I needed. But that doesn't stop me from recognizing and appreciating what Mr. Rogers did for so many other children.

Hey, dude! Check out my new video. It's name is "Mannmaranjupoyilla En Rakshakan!!!". It's Malayalam for "My Saviour didn't remain buried!". Same channel- Aeric Lee. Also see my video(on the same channel) "THE LION KING: CIRCLE OF LIFE(Stop Motion)", and tell me what you think in the video's comment section.

Thanks! Do see this one as well(it may be a little long, though): The Life and Work of Christ. It's a video of my drawings of several of the important scenes from Jesus' earthly ministry.
