I find the silence, or the music. In the midst of turmoil and chaos I need something to calm the mind. Often that's silence. But silence sometimes can be deafening and music that speaks to the soul is needed. I remind myself of my personal motto: Amor et musica soli sunt aeterni = only love and music last forever. One can always find the love for fellow humans even in chaos (Mr. Rogers' "look for the helpers") and one can always find music - think of the singers, violinists, pianists, etc we see playing in war zones. That's why.
