HAMILTON: Are we to be tinkled or tickled by each other?


Niagara Gazette — But, I guess, until we hodgepodge of Americans all grow up and be honest with ourselves, and then come to the realization that we think way too little of ourselves and much too much of others, we will just walk around ‘pissed’ off at each and remain where we are. Meanwhile, we have to tiptoe around our tongue.

Legend will likely move on with her life, go on to Kindergarten, off to college and then into the world of which, by changing herself, she will be an agent of change for others -- all because she has learned how not to be ‘pissed’ off at anyone. Instead, she learned to be just “tinkled” at them.

One day, Legend will confidently even learn how to be “tickled” by it all.

If she can learn those things, we can learn them too.
