I’m no Buddhist.

Already blessed with the happy gene — and being way too inflexible to sit cross-legged — it’s not a good fit.

But you, dear reader!

I thought you might enjoy this free (for the next 20 hours) screening of Mission: JOY . . . Finding Happiness In Troubled Times.

It precedes the (also free) four-day Global JOY Summit.

And, yes, these are troubled times.  But a lot less troubled than a week ago, before we learned that election deniers could be defeated — and even graciously concede.

Until the guy who lost by 7 million votes but claimed he won by a landslide, plotted a coup, and incited a violent insurrection, that’s how our democracy always worked.

Even when you were more qualified and got more votes than your opponent.  (Here is Al Gore’s concession speech.)

Indeed, even when you were vastly more qualified and got millions more votes.  (Hillary’s.)

You know who make me so proud to be a Democrat?

Winning candidates like FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ, Carter, Bill, Barack, and Joe.

And those not given the chance to serve, like Al and Hillary.

And, for that matter, Adlai Stevenson, Hubert Humphrey, George McGovern, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, and John Kerry.

Magnificently talented, caring people, one and all.

Have a great week.

Things are looking up.
