“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
— John 15:12-13
Back when New York City was reeling from 9-11, a journalist asked that gentle Presbyterian preacher and children’s TV icon Fred Rogers what parents could say to their children about the disaster.
Mr. Rogers didn’t hesitate.
“Tell the children to keep their eyes on the helpers,” he advised.
May God be with the people suffering in Louisiana, and all those first responders and volunteers and neighbors and all who are risking and sacrificing and pitching in to help one another, loving their neighbors as themselves.
