With all eyes focused on Orlando, it’s fitting that a grieving world is finding solace in the words of a gentle man who possessed deep ties to our community.

A simple yet profound quote from the late Rollins graduate Fred Rogers ’51 ’74H, beloved host of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood:
“When I was a boy and would see scary things on the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” Rogers said. “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.’”
