In response to the horror during the Boston Marathon, I want to share a quote my friend Mike Biette posted on his Facebook page. This perspective is the only thing that can get us through these really awful and sad times.
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.
