Look for the Helpers

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I heard this on NPR this morning and was very moved by it. Apparently Mr. Rogers told this story on his children’s TV program. He said that when he was young, his mother told him that when bad things happen, he should always look for the helpers. She said that they would always be there, coming to the aid of others, offering comfort.

That was certainly true in Boston yesterday, and has been true in every tragedy we’ve experienced. They are always there, rushing in despite the danger, to help those in need. The helpers are the ones that deserve our attention, the headlines, and our gratitude. They, and the people they assist, are the ones that truly matter.

    So very true! Wonderful blog! I had helpers come to my rescue on 9/11 when I was in the middle of the horror trying to get out alive. I believe these "helpers" may sometimes be Angels.

    That's true. Sometimes it's just as important to get out of the way, so that the people who need help can get it.

    Well said. We should all be grateful for them.
