Mr. Roger’s influence has been integral for me through his teachings to understand the world. His gentle nature is a thing of admiration and I’ll pass his legacy on to my children. The sweater that he is wearing is a Coogi sweater, made popular in the 1990s by America Hip-Hop culture and partially symbolizes his invitation “to the cook-out”.
