Finding Honolulu’s Helpers During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Children’s TV icon Fred Rogers liked to quote his mother’s advice for facing stressful times. When he saw scary things on the news, she would say: “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are witnessing grief, loss, stress and strain but also seeing everyday heroes who inspire others through these tough times. Our Honolulu helpers.
