Being a Helper…Again

My cousin and his young son are headed back home after running in the Boston Marathon. It is less than one day later after the Boston Marathon bombings, and there is still so much to do. Find the murderers, comfort the injured and traumatized, and once again, help this country heal. There is a Mr. Rogers meme circulating on Facebook right now. It goes like this: “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.'” — Fred Rogers

Once again, our job is to be the helpers, to show that there are many more good people in this world, to offset the evil ones. I am encouraging you to once again embrace Anne Curry’s #26Acts2. No act of kindness is too small or insignificant. We cannot bring back the people who died in the Boston Marathon attack, but we can show these evildoers that the kindness of the American spirit will not be quenched by their horrible acts.
