Looking for the Helpers!

A comment on the senseless Boston tragedy.  Watching the news, horrified.  One leader after another, telling the cameras what their department is doing about it.  Positive responses, to be sure.  The most encouraging voice yesterday, though, was from Mr. Rogers who said, “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.”

He is so right!  Thankfully, the news people turned quickly to pointing out the good people who scrambled to help others yesterday.  If we open our eyes, we see it everywhere, really. That’s how we roll; at least in Yakima!

As Tom Peters said, “Celebrate what you want to see more of”.
