Always Remember...

... Unless it might upset the young 'uns.

Although you can just about understand it:

"We don't want our kids thinking about that. We want them to move on," said Beth Johnston, principal at East Layton Elementary in Davis County, whose oldest student was just 6 on Sept. 11, 2001. "It might be age-appropriate for older students to acknowledge and talk about it, but for our younger kids, we don't want them to dwell on violence."

Try as I might, though, I can't see this this would excuse not observing Remembrance Day... "Yes the sacrifice made by members of the armed forces during both World Wars was truly great, but we wouldn't want to scare the kiddywinks would we..."
