Where We Take Comfort

Watch A Message of Hope on PBS. See more from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.

In comments, Toni mentioned this simple message Mr. Rogers recorded after September 11, and Fatemeh reminded us how traumatic it is for responders to handle situations involving children. I’ve avoided the news about the Newtown killings these last few days, because instead of focusing on one troubled person, I’m trying to remember everyone else.

A single man can’t cause us to despair of humanity when we consider the dozens of teachers who put their lives between him and our children, the hundreds of responders who rushed to find him, and the millions like them — ordinary people with the capacity for great good.
