Inspired by PA's favorite neighbor

1-4-3 or I-Love-You. From the City of Brotherly Love to the birthplace of Fred Rogers, America's most beloved neighbor, Pennsylvania is a place where kindness and gratitude to those who make up our community is part of who we are. That's what makes PA such an incredible place to live.

Fred Rogers regularly used 143 as his special code for "I Love You" - based on the number of letters in each word. From today forward, the 143rd day of the year is #143DayinPA-a day when we encourage our residents to share the acts of kindness and good deeds they do for each other. This way, we can all reflect on how grateful we are to have each other. So let's get out and make someone feel the love. Happy #143DayinPA!

Imagine what our real neighborhoods would be like if each of us offered, as a matter of course, just one kind word to another person. Fred Rogers
