The character of an individual's emotion and the public opinion are almost the same. When there's a commotion, heavy feelings and tough words will go out. Seems like an orchestrated one, you will hear people saying the same things and suggesting drastic actions in reaction to what the issue is. Wait for a week or two before logical minds and voices take over. Same with you as a person. Once deep emotion subsides, the mind and logic will take over and that's when you need to listen to yourself and take action.
