Mister Rogers Reminds Us To Always Look For the Helpers in Life to Give Us the Hope We Need

The late, great neighbor Fred Rogers, creator of the PBS show Mister Rogers Neighborhood, had told his viewers that the best way to deal with hard times is to always look for the helpers in life because when things get really bad or tragedy strikes, there will always be someone who will reach out and help.

There was something else my mother did that I’ve always remembered: “Always look for the helpers,” she’d tell me. “There’s always someone who is trying to help.” I did, and I came to see that the world is full of doctors and nurses, police and firemen, volunteers, neighbors and friends who are ready to jump in to help when things go wrong.
