How One City Is Continuing An Effort To Promote Kindness
When the mayor installed new signs to promote kindness, residents had strong opinions.
Pittsburgh's mayor, Bill Peduto, announced that more signs are in the works to be placed in citywide "Kindness Zones." The signs were originally introduced on 1-4-3 day (May 23rd, the 143rd day of the year), a day honoring Pittsburgh native and beloved TV personality, Fred Rogers. The signs are meant to bring a smile to those passing by, and also to serve as a reminder to be more neighborly, like Fred.
