The solution is not to pretend that bad things don't happen. It's for our society to grow up and learn to accept that they do, and learn to take care of one another. If your daughter dies next year, at the end of the year, will you pretend it didn't happen? Someone with a happier year would have a happier year in review.
Yes. But as I already said above, this is exactly why not the review is the problem. It's the thoughtless "See the review of your fantastic year" line. A "Do you want us to create a year review at all" question would be a way to ask if somone had a happy year. A "rate your year" would even be better.
