Today's Tragic Shooting Leaves Me Wordless; Quotes of Comfort

Gunman shot 20 children and 6 adults in Connecticut
Mr. Rogers

Today's tragic shooting in Connecticut leaving 20 young children and 6 adults dead, leaves me heartbroken. I have no words to express my sorrow but am leaving some quotes in hopes it might comfort someone:

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say, “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. ~ Mr. Rogers
