October 30's contribution by Darby Conley is appropriate for writers and the times.
Hope you don't take it seriously, though it does give pause.
Poetry has its place in the world today. The fear factor needs to be balanced by the beauty of words and by creating a respite for us all with the images that lift our spirits. Poets are there too to provide the echo of the turbulence.
What are your thoughts about this?

Are your loved ones O.K.?
On this gruesome day
That's the question we ask
As we face the task
Of clearing the debris
That could herald World War III.
The echoes resound
As the buildings tumble to the ground
Have you seen this person around?
Have you seen my daughter, my brother, my wife?
People hurtled from windows in terror
