Supporting kids in hard times

Tucson's paper, the Arizona Daily Star, ran a Sunday editorial focused on kids in light of the shootings last week.

They quoted the late Fred Rogers on ways to help kids through tragedy.

• "We adults must do all we can to act like adults and not to give in to the fear."

• "It's all right to be angry, but it's not all right to hurt other people. It's a very strong message, but our children and the children of the world need to be able to grow up with that."

•  "Tell them, we're going to take care of you, and no matter what, we're in this together."
