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.” - Mr. Rogers
And so the boulder begins to break down. The weight begins to lift. The air I breathe becomes less toxic.
But I'm cheating. I'm not watching the news. I'm not looking at their faces. I'm not listening to their stories.
I don't know what to do.
