Finding Solace in Art

I don't need to repeat the news, it's pretty awful/gruesome in so many ways in so many places and for so many people. 
It's overwhelming.
It's hard to know what to do, how to help, how to channel that anguish. 
I feel like this

We so desperately need the good souls to keep lighting the way, which is hard to do when our hearts are breaking and our souls are beaten by the constant onslaught of poisonous hatred. I can but find solace in my art, and try to help in my small way.
