In the wake of recent tragic events in Orlando, it is clear now more than ever why we, at MACS, choose kindness. It is a reminder that connecting to one another is a responsibility, and we must educate and model for our children how to show compassion for one another. Helpers emerge in times of tragedy and it becomes apparent that there is always good amidst the devastation. However kindness, compassion and human connection should be even more present in peace in hopes of preventing the recurrence of hate. Fear and hate will not define us, our kindness is louder and our love is stronger. And remember, for your children, who may be aware of the tragedies we face too often, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” – Mr. Rogers
