have we all evolved into a nation of young children who cannot accept anything but "our way".

So done with hearing about all the crybabies leaving for Canada, and the rest prepared to spend the next 8 years fighting whichever side gets in.

So much more could get accomplished if we accepted the results and worked together to make this a better country.

The most expedient method for those left behind to deal wit their grief is through laughter. Sharing those times where their life crossed that of the deceased resulting in a moment of humor.

Mary Anne Noland, opened this gateway to healing for those near to her, who knew her,  in a very creative way. Neither Hillary or Donald possess such capability.

It is therapeutic.

Well, that depends.  That might well have been her humor ... wanting to part the world in a light-hearted and funny way.
