Mr. Rogers said that, as a child, when he saw things on the news that scared him, his mother told him to look past the scary things and to look for the helpers.
It's true. You can look at any tragedy, anywhere in the world, and there are always helpers. There are good people who go out of there way to come to the rescue of those in need. Those who run to trouble, instead of away from it.
I'm looking for the helpers in our world. There are a lot of them out there.
And I thank God for that. Especially tonight.
