Fred Rogers gives advice
From The Obstruction Project November 2018. My husband challenged me to make something that clearly expressed anger, something that is very difficult for me. I chose to respond to the 1000 Oaks shooting. I want to return to this work – I never felt it was complete, and if the events of this past week indicate anything, gun violence may never be a thing of the past.

Text: “…if we in public television can only make it clear that feelings are mentionable and manageable, we will have done a great service for mental health. I think that it’s much more dramatic that two men could be working out their feelings of anger — much more dramatic than showing something of gunfire.” -Fred Rogers, U.S. Senate Statement on PBS Funding, May 1, 1969
