For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14 (NKJV)
My sense of things is that God is calling each of us in our own locations and situations to consider God's call upon our lives. These are "times that try men's souls", yet they are times when we are called to count the cost of following Jesus Christ, wherever he may lead us.
