He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.

St Francis of Assisi was dead on about so many things.
“Preach the gospel whenever possible. When necessary, use words.”
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.

I keep coming back to this quote to read it. It really struck a chord with me. I think it’s important to remember this and look for the kindness that exists in even the smallest of actions.
This quote is the unicorn chaser for the day - I hope there are helpers for everyone in need in Aurora tonight.
Mr Rogers, we still need you.
