In times of crisis, there is a quote that will always surface. It's from the late TV presenter, and American icon, Mr Rogers, and it's shortened to "Look for the helpers".
"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'," he said. "To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realising that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world."
When something as devastating as Monday night's attack on Manchester occurs, it can be easy to think that there is nothing good in the world. However, in between and helping to find missing people, social media has been filled with examples of helpers supporting the emergency services, and their community.
It can feel paralysing not to be able to do anything in these circumstances, but it is good for the soul to hear of small kindnesses. So here are some of the kindnesses that have taken place in Manchester in the last hours.
#RoomForManchester saw people and hotels offering up their spare beds[ id="866800052701999104"] [ id="866817273616637954"]
Even if people didn't take them up on their offer, it's incredibly kind.
This man was certainly grateful of getting somewhere for his charges to sleep.
Cabbies offered their services for free to let people get back to where they needed to be
And they weren't just from Manchester.
As trolls started tweeting about the killer and what his background might be, their comments were dwarfed by news of people from all faiths helping their city.
People have been queuing up to donate blood to Manchester's ongoing drive
The NHS blood service tweeted that there is currently enough blood to treat the hospital patients, but that anyone with an appointment for later in the week should do their best to keep it.
If you would like to give blood, please be sure to register first at and book an appointment.
Don't forget the tea – bringing a brew to the police and emergency services still on call
Cafes and restaurants in the city also offered free food and drinks to those still out on the streets.
Shops even offered free phone charging so people could stay in touch
Even the hawkers got involved
And if you need further news of kindness, it turns out that today is the 50th anniversary of when Mr Rogers began his TV show.
In the darkest hours, we need the light of a kind action. And that, Manchester has brought in spades.
