Mr. Rogers died 16 years ago but he's still with us.
When bad things happen in the world, we can console our children with the words of Fred Rogers and his mom:
There was something my mother did that I’ve always remembered: “Always look for the helpers,” she’d tell me. “There’s always someone who is trying to help.” I did, and I came to see that the world is full of doctors and nurses, police and firemen, volunteers, neighbors and friends who are ready to jump in to help when things go wrong.
