When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.This is going into my quote journal.
I got it from GetReligion's piece which looks at how Mr. Rogers is being evoked in news stories these days in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown. Well worth reading.
