Best award speech: Fred Rogers receiving the 1997 Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award

Can you even imagine an award recipient at your conference giving a speech like this? Just goes to show that even the most overdone and/or boring award event (obviously, I'm not a fan of these things) can have its redeeming moments.


After wiping away the tears, I took a few moments to thank those special ones who have loved me into being.

(Thanks to Mental Floss for this one.)
