Not all wounds will heal. If they did, then death would be obsolete. Therefore, symbolically, many of the wounds opened during the recent Presidential Election cycle in the United States(US), will not heal.
However, for the good of the Republic and for the unity of the nation, some wounds could be soothed as a compromise to maintaining the national identity of the US. It is the responsibility of President-elect Donald Trump to usher in the compromise and unity healing phase.
Failure by the President-elect to make the necessary overtures to national healing could result in a festering of racial, anti-immigrant and anti-Semitic wounds that were gashed opened during the President-elect's all out ambition to seek the Oval Office.
If ongoing protests by American youths against the President-elect are not sufficient to point to a need for healing in America, then the next four-years could be filled with turbulence from coast to coast in the US.
