In the wake of tragedy, look to Mr. Rogers advice.


If you’re struggling with the news out of Las Vegas, remember Mr. Rogers’ advice:

“Always look for the helpers.

There will always be helpers.

Just on the sidelines.

That’s why I think that if news programs could make a conscious effort of showing rescue teams, of showing medical people, anybody who is coming into a place where there’s a tragedy… to be sure that they include that.

Because if you look for the helpers, you’ll know that there is hope.
