A few weeks ago, I heard an interview on The Diane Rehm Show with Michael Davis, author of "Street Gang," a book about the history of Sesame Street. On the show, Davis read a scene from the show that explains to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper is dead. It made tears well up in my eyes when I heard it then, and again when I watched the actual scene on You Tube. Someone I work with at church recently lost her father, and it made me think of this clip. Take a look.
