Honoring the memory of what was lost and the hope for what is yet to be built.
Bill Bragin sent a note around today that talks about the quote that he has used in his electronic signature since 9-11. It’s from the great Leonard Bernstein and it reads:
"This will be our reply to violence:
to make music more intensely,
more devotedly than ever before."
A life-affirming call to action. That’s exactly what we need and, I think, the best way to honor those who are no longer with us.
