Failure to accept results doing great damage to our democracy

The picture in the Nov. 15 edition of The Day of Trump supporters in Washington protesting their loss prompted sad thoughts.

After the next Super Bowl will fans of the losing team angrily mob the trophy ceremony? 

Kate Rotella, a highly qualified and effective state representative, lost the election. Shall we form a protest group and heckle and demean the victor, Greg Howard?

The civic lessons we have given our children by condoning, with timidity, the tactics of dictators will haunt our future. Shall we thus normalize evil?

Greece and Rome could not keep democracy either.
