This is just horrible. Not nice news to wake up to here over the other side of the world. Thoughts are with all those involved and those of you who who have friends and family in the area.
“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.” — Mister Rogers
That's a good way to deal with tragedy like this and it's definitely a good way to help kids deal with it.
