(Video link here.)  At her concert in Stockholm yesterday, a visibly-shaken Madonna addressed the very difficult question “why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying at the lost of their loved ones?” Painfully, sadly, she gave the very wise, life-affirming answer before launching into Like a Prayer at 7 mins-in…

One thought on “Madonna on Why We Go On In Spite of/Because of…Paris

  1. Epitaph on a Tyrant
    W. H. Auden, 1907 – 1973

    Perfection, of a kind, was what he was after,
    And the poetry he invented was easy to understand;
    He knew human folly like the back of his hand,
    And was greatly interested in armies and fleets;
    When he laughed, respectable senators burst with laughter,
    And when he cried the little children died in the streets.
