What to tell children when tragedy strikes….

Mr. Rogers had a calming influence on children and parents.

“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.

–Fred Rogers

  1. Thank you for this, Genie. I think those words are helpful and comforting to say to adults as well.
