Eh, bad things happen every year. 2016 when compared to every other year wasn't even that bad.
Sometimes it's like a pendulum. Things may continue to get worse, untill it gets really bad. Reggie Watts described it sort of like that "Then it gets pretty good again, then it gets all uh-oh"
Whatever happens, might as well make the best of it.
@JO'Geran David bowie and Alan rickman died this year. That's bad enough for me.
