“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.” – Fred Rogers
In light of the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio last weekend, I wonder, when are we going to say, “Enough“?
When will we say “No more hate, no more discord, no more violence“?
When will we say “These are my children, my brothers and sisters, my community, my country, and my problem“?
Let’s all be the heroes we need right now.
Let’s see the need and respond.
Let’s do it now.
