I read the article in Sunday’s Parade about how laughter can play a role in healing. I think we should have clowns go to Haiti to the orphanages, after the children get food, water, and medical needs met. The University of Haifa in Israel has clowns go into the hospital because they have confirmed that laughter is good for healing in a study in Pediatric Anethesia. There are Clown Doctors around the world. I think of my oncologist who was like a clown, and he sure helped me to heal quickly.
