So after a few minutes of being online today, I heard the news of the Boston Marathon explosions. Authorities are still trying to figure it all out, but so far there have been 2 dead and more than 20 people injured.
We try, and try again to not think of this world as a bad place. We like to think that people are good. We like to think that this was just an outlier in a sea of well-meaning, good people.
In my own way, I like to pay attention to the good and funny things in life. I enjoy paying attention to people, and details that we just don’t find the time to talk about. This is a blog about people. And I believe people are good.
In tough times like these, I like to remember a little story from one of my favorite people:
“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.” -Mr. Rogers
Please don’t forget that there is more good in this world than you may realize at this moment.
Let us get together, trust in each other, and become unstoppable using only forces of good.
Thank you for reading,
