Mick Jagger

"People are saying to me, and I felt the same way: 'I couldn't do anything for a week. My life, all my things, feel so trivial.' But to some extent, after the shock and mourning comes the adjustment to real life. During times of war, my parents tried to carry on as normally as much as you can, with adjustments. You can't let terrorists completely change your lifestyle. They would love that. That's a victory. People are knocked off their feet. But you don't want to lose hope and morale. You have to mourn. You're glued to CNN more than you should be. But in the end, you have to do what you do."
