Finding Comfort in the Pain and Confusion
There are no words today for what has happened in Newtown, Connecticut. Only tears.
However, my cousin shared this with me today and I am grateful for it has helped me, and others, to find balance and to calm the anger, rage and confusion that threatens to take over in times like these.
“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.” ~ Mr. Rogers
Peace, love and healing to the community of Newtown.
