Mr. Rogers Remix: Garden of Your Mind

If you grew up with Mr. Rogers like I did, you're going to love this video.

It's a musical remix of some of Fred Rogers' simple yet profound ideas -- including this one: "You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind."

Symphony of Science's John Melodysheep Boswell teamed up with PBS Digital Studios to produce "Garden Of Your Mind" and it's gone viral, with more than 4 million views in its first week.

Mr. Rogers presented us with a vision of the world where things can be scary, but we'll get through it if we treat each other as neighbors.

Sometimes, as I'm trying to explain something to my two kids, I hear myself channeling Mr. Rogers -- and that's a very, very good thing.
