“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.”
