Others posted stupid distractions.

A few more shared some not-so-comforting quotes about patience.

And, as so often, Dan Rather had some wise advice.

These are turbulent and dangerous times. My gentle advice is to have lots of hope, pray (if you do), stay calm, be patient, and not forget to breathe. If you can, listen to your favorite music, read a book or poetry, and take a walk when the weather is nice.
