You see, my heart--like everyone else's--is breaking and has been all weekend. Those children, those educators, that mother in Connecticut are all on my mind.
Someone I know on facebook posted this quotation from everybody's favorite neighbor, Fred 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."
I am trying to think about the helpers, too.
