Reflecting on today’s events in Boston

There is a quote that I really want to share.

“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

I think it is important to remember in times like these when tragedies like what happened in Boston today occur that there is still good left in the world. I’ve seen a lot of Facebook statuses today about people “giving up on the world” or “losing faith in all people and humanity.” My heart hurts and absolutely goes out to those affected by this and their families. May they find peace in this chaos and comfort among this loss and confusion.

I don’t want to give up. I want to believe that there is absolutely still good in the world and that there are helpers everywhere, every time.
