Look for the helpers

November 17th, 2015 | Uncategorized

With everything going on in the world, our news feeds on all forms of social media are filled with sad stories, stereotypes, hate, terrorist attacks, etc. You can try to stay off of it and not read about all of the horrific incidents, but at some point it gets to you. And it has definitely been getting to me. To me, it is sad that we have come so far in this world only to be taking steps back. Animosity is being spread instead of compassion and humanity. Innocent people are being killed. Now I definitely won’t be going into my political views and all of that, but I came across something that made me a little more optimistic. It’s a quote from Fred Rogers that reads, “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.'” 

With that, I feel a little more at ease. All I can do is believe that I am having an impact on the people around me and trust this journey!
