You are better than that. Yes, you. Your friends are better than that, and your loved ones are better than that. Remind them of this, as no one else will. Try to be as compassionate and understanding as you can be, keep your head down, and keep calm & carry on. The world isn't ending tonight, and it isn't ending tomorrow. We as a species have survived much, much worse, so the odds are that we will continue to do so now provided we don't turn on each other & let fear get the better of us.
We are a social species and we survive by supporting one another. That might well have to be over text message for a while, but when this all blows over, we'll want to have friends and family to go back to. That won't happen if we alienate others due to hysteria.
Blessings to you and yours,
