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.” - Mr Rogers.
For three days, I've tried to write a post about the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut and for three days I've stared at a blank screen with no words. What can I possibly say that hasn't already been said? What can I say that will make any of this any better? There are simply no words. What happened on Friday will forever haunt us all.
And so, to the teachers & parents & community members that are actively involved in making our world a better place, I cherish you. I send you light, love, healing & as much space as you need right now. I'm trying to focus on the helpers. And I'm playing a lot more with my nieces and nephews.
