A man plays John Lennon's "Imagine" on a piano outside the Bataclan in Paris after yesterday's attacks. 
Still from a video clip at the Guardian's coverage of the attacks of 11/13/15. [I added the lyrics.]

Thank you for that.

“Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are here tonight, and we must remember that music is the — one of the beautiful things of life. So we have to try to keep the music alive some kind of way. And maybe music can help. I don't know, but we have to try something these days, right?” Sonny Rollins, before a concert, September 15, 2001.

And thank you.
This quote is great.

I'd actually gone to the orchestra the night of the attacks in Paris, and the conductor addressed the audience--(I'd never seen that before)--and said pretty much the same thing Sonny Rollins says here.
