Look for the helpers

 

‎”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.” 
~ Mister Rogers

The Skeptical Mother posted this quote on facebook in light of the shootings in Connecticut.  May our thoughts and prayers go to all those whose lives have changed by this tragic event, but may we also join Mister Rogers in knowing that there is still good in people and the world.
