Look for the Helpers, Be the Caring People in this World

rogers-framedIn the wake of disaster, especially when it is far away, you can be left with a desire to act, but wondering: What Can I Do? There is a meme with a quote from Mr. Rogers which has been making the rounds on the internet:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers.
