Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with Newtown, Connecticut. In the face of the unimaginable, we have found comfort in the words of Fred Rogers (aka Mr. Rogers):
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 week, look for the helpers, and when you can be one, take the opportunity. No matter how small the help, your kindness makes a difference. In fact, it makes all the difference.
