ACTUAL SUPERHERO CORY BOOKER
I bust this quote out in the aftermath of any and all scary things that happen in this world because it’s true.
“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.” ― Fred Rogers
It’s not just Mayor Booker either. It’s the team he has with him. The firefighters, EMS, police, and other first responders in Newark and beyond who were busy through last night and most likely haven’t rested much today. And many, most likely, are volunteers doing this all without pay. Those are the helpers Mr. Rogers talked about. They are our heroes.
