Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche's advice for the present world situation: 

"The strong practice of Dharma [Buddhism] and the awareness of impermanence and death brings peace in your heart and no fear. It also makes you think, without any choice, of the incredible suffering of other sentient beings that one can hear and one can see. You don’t have to read Dharma texts in order to discover and to see how this situation is unbearable. 
For yourself, it becomes a very strong persuasion to develop and generate compassion that leads to bodhichitta [the mind wishing to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings], which will lead you to enlightenment, lead you to create the causes of temporary and ultimate happiness, of enlightenment, for all the other sentient beings equaling the infinite sky."
