At first, Amy Hollingsworth's calm voice and steady pace seemed too uninvolved, too unruffled for the depth of the emotional connection she claims to feel for the late Fred Rogers, of "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood." However, as she unfolds the story of what Rogers means to her and how his personal faith is revealed in his life and show, it becomes apparent just how fitting her delivery is. One of Hollingsworth's core claims about Rogers is that he provided a respite from the world and that the calm he created through his cadence and through the tempo at which people interacted in his neighborhood were direct reflections of his faith and gentle spirit.
