In the Face of Unspeakable Tragedy...Cultivate Love

"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."  Words by And this wonderful advice from Mr. Rogers (shared by Angel Marie & Brene Brown)
