I’ve been struggling with whether or not to mention the terrible events in Newtown on this blog. I try to keep this space a positive, creative area to share my projects and experiences. But in the wake of what has happened, I just can’t seem to shake this feeling of sadness and deep sympathy for the families of the victims.
I’ll be back later this week with more of the usual, but for today, I’ll leave this Manic Monday with just this wisdom that’s being passed around the Internet this weekend, from a childhood favorite of mine:
“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.” — Mister Rogers
