comforting words from mr. rogers’ mother…

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.”

  1. Thank you, I shielded my 10 yr old from the news last night, but I know it will be talked about at school today and that I will have to answer horrible questions – – “look for the helpers” – –

  2. It’s the way I handle these events myself…I look to the positive things that happen in the wake of the tragedy—the kindnesses, the selfless acts, the courage of the survivors.
