There's a great article on Motley Fool/Yahoo! today that might give you a new way of seeing today.
I agree with the authors — the world is not coming to an end and the sun will rise tomorrow. Are you really going to let the doomsayers (eg. media) bring you down with the Dow?
PS — I wish Uncle Buffett would be more sensitive to the crisis in confidence. His comments today didn't help anyone (but the media) and drove the market down. What was he thinking? It is as if he's on the sidelines, with nothing to lose.
