Tips for coping (in case we need them)

Today a couple of women were in our neighborhood handing out election reminders. We had a conversation over the fence. I said, "Of course we really believe in our hearts that the right team will win the election. But what, just what if it doesn't work out that way? What will we do? How will we survive? One of the women said she asked that same question of a Buddhist monk friend of hers.
The monk said, "You will just go on. You will go on doing exactly what you're doing right now. You will continue to do good. You will continue trying to make a difference in our world."

Easier said than done. Sorry to be so skeptical.

I know. Those Buddhists. They are like little spiritual worker bees.
