Music in the Mountains: A video dedicated to “the helpers”

“As I created this video from a recording of the Music in the Mountains Chorus singing at Peace Lutheran Church in the spring of 2017, I thought of this quote from Fred Rogers (aka Mr. Rogers):

“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.

“On World Health Day amid a global health crisis, it is important to take a few minutes to remember the helpers. This video is dedicated to them.”
