We in the arts...have the great and good gift of dealing with beauty, with joy and hope...We do this in a world that is sometimes unimaginably ugly. What can we now do? Nothing more than to keep doing what we do; to continue to be part of what makes life good, what makes it worthwhile, what gives hope and joy and brings smiles to faces.
I highly recommend The Further Erosion of American Innocence from Barry's Blog His beautiful and thoughtful post on what the arts can do in the wake of a tragedy like the shooting at Sandy Hook was moving and even comforting.
