Find the Helpers : What 9/11 and Parkland Taught Me about Recovery, Purpose, and Hope (Grief Recovery)
by Fred Guttenberg and Bradley Whitford




Overview -
How a Parkland Dad and 9/11 Brother Faced Tragedy with the Help of Many Good People

Don't tell me there's no such thing as gun violence. It happened in Parkland. ―Fred Guttenberg

2020 Nautilus Silver Winner
#1 New Release in Grief & Loss

Life changed forever on Valentine's Day 2018 for Fred Guttenberg and his family. What should have been a day of love turned into a nightmare. Seventeen people died at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Fourteen-year-old Jaime Guttenberg was the second to last victim.

"Fred Guttenberg is a hero. ―Lawrence O'Donnell. That Jaime and so many of her fellow students were struck down in cold blood galvanized many to action, including Jaime's father Fred now a gun safety activist dedicated to passing common sense gun safety legislation.

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.

Find the Helpers has a special meaning to the Guttenberg's. It was a beloved family wisdom learned from watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. In the midst of tragedy, 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

Healing from grief. Discover the story of Fred Guttenberg's activist'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 to former VP Joe Biden, who spent time talking to him about finding mission and purpose in learning to grieve.
