Thank you for supporting my work!
I know you could just “take” it from the internet, so I really appreciate you valuing my words!
Mr. Rogers said his mother told him to look for the helpers. I designed this piece after another school shooting. It struck me. The helpers. Were my kids being raised to help or hurt? What were the tangible things we could talk about that ensured they were choosing to help rather than hurt? We came up with a family list of things we would implement. These are some of the things we decided would make helping be a verb rather than just an idea. And, trying to be cool? Totally uncool.
