I first heard this quote right after the Newtown tragedy just a few months ago. I found comfort in it and wanted to share with you. Technically this portion of the quote belongs to Fred Rogers’ mother as she told this to him.

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.’”

I love this sentiment. I find comfort in it. I also think it’s a good way to look at the world and is how I want to share the world and these events with my son when he’s old enough to understand. I believe the world is generally very beautiful and that people are generally good. My thoughts are with those affected by tragedy.
