Overcoming Grief Through the Humanity of Others"This book offers powerful and heartening lessons on how we can help one another move forward and build a safer, more just world." ?Gabby Giffords
#1 New Release in Grief & Loss
Fred Guttenberg loved watching Mr. Rogers with his daughter and son when they were little. Their favorite wisdom was: In the midst of tragedy and catastrophe, find the helpers.

"Always look for the helpers. There will always be helpers. Because if you look for the helpers, you''ll know there''s hope." ?Fred Rogers, 1999

Life changed forever on Valentine''s Day 2018. What was to be a family day celebrating love turned into a nightmare. Thirty-four people were shot at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Jaime Guttenberg, a fourteen-year-old with a huge heart, was the second to last victim.

Fred was already struggling with deep personal loss. Four months earlier his brother Michael died of 9/11 induced pancreatic cancer. He had been exposed to too much dust and chemicals at Ground Zero. Michael battled heroically for nearly five years and then died at age fifty.

This book is not about gun safety or Parkland. Instead, it tells the story of Fred Guttenberg''s journey since Jaime''s death and how he has been able to get through the worst of times thanks to the kindness and compassion of others. Good things happen to good people at the hands of other good people-and the world is filled with them. They include everyone from amazing gun violence survivors Fred has met around the country to former VP Joe Biden, who spent time talking to him about finding mission and purpose in learning to grieve.
If you''ve read books such as Eyes to the Wind, Haben, or The Beauty in Breaking, then you''ll love Find the Helpers .
Fred Guttenberg began his public life after the murder of his beautiful fourteen-year-old daughter Jaime in the Parkland school shooting on Feb 14, 2018. The day after the murder, Fred decided to attend a public vigil in Parkland. While there, the mayor asked him to speak. His words shook a nation and he has not stopped since. Only fou...
