More Intensely, More Beautifully, More Devotedly

News about the mass shooting in San Jose, CA yesterday brought to my mind the words of Leonard Bernstein after JFK's assassination:

" ... But this sorrow and rage will not inflame us to seek retribution; rather they will inflame our art. Our music will never again be quite the same. This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before. " (emphasis mine)
… anyone looking for a drummer?
