There really are no words for yesterday's tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut. Such evil. Such sadness!! So horrific.
These words were one of the best things I read all day, and I thought they were also something we could say to our children about yesterday's events. I hope they help you, too.
"When I was a boy and 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
