Look for the Helpers
This advice came to mind on the heels of the latest Boston Massacre -- the bombing at the finish line at the Boston Marathon.
It has been all over the web the past couple days via the persona of the late Fred Rogers, whose famous children's show was the champion of many parents. What he said, as noted below, stands as great communications for those who sympathize with the victims and the victims themselves. I paraphrase Mr. Rogers below, and also provide the link, above:
My mother used to say a long time ago that whenever there is a catastrophe, “always look for the helpers … there will always be helpers. … If news programs could make a conscious effort of showing rescue teams — or showing anybody who is coming into a place where there’s a tragedy — to be sure they include that … because if you look for the helpers, you’ll know that there’s HOPE."
