The question has been asked about the new TV series, "Go On," featuring Matthew Perry from "Friends." The half-hour comedy is about a recently widowed radio sports personality and his encounters in a community grief group. Personally, I like the show, it is funny and pokes fun at grief groups which most of us will admit to attending at least once. My experience with attending a grief group was actually funny, amidst my sorrow I laughed at some of the stuff people would bring up in a grief group - once a woman came who was grieving her dog, now I'm not inhumane in fact I have a pet myself, but when you compare it to losing your husband just seems like no comparison and it actually did make me laugh.
I believe laughter can heal and through our sorrow, even if we can find something to laugh about occasionally and not feel guilt about it, is a step in the right direction. I am not the least bit offended by "Go On" and I hope it endures all the critics.
