The chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School will sing "America the Beautiful" before Sunday's Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.

The chorus features 26 children from Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., where 20 first-graders and six adults were killed in a Dec. 14 shooting rampage.

The performance will be part of CBS's pre-game show, and will be broadcast live. Alicia Keys will sing the national anthem.

Joking of course, to add a little humor to a still tragic story.

Seems like a weird way to get publicity off of the shooting (looking at CBS).

Why?

To keep this disaster fresh in peoples minds? Surely people don't want to be reminded about some sicko killing children before a superbowl game?

I can understand wanting to console children after such a horrific and terrible tragedy..

I just don't know how propelling the children in front of the entire nation - after they've been at the front of the entire nation, will help.

I'm sure these kids have lovely voices, and their courage is definitely beyond what mine was as a child..

But, to me personally, I'm not sure if this is an opportunity for the children, or a propaganda tool.

I thought they didnt want  the publicity. Oh well guess its hard for them to avoid.

Now it stinks of a Propaganda push by the Government for there Gun Ban agenda. Poor Kids.

But I do hope they rock the house !!

One side blames the gun and the other blame violent video games when it lack of mental health care and ignoring a person with problems hoping it will go away or they won't do the worst.

I do get the feeling these children are being used but I wish them the best and I'm sure they will do a great job.

I couldn't agree with this any more.

Using thess children I have a huge problem with. I do assume money is changing hands as well and during a super bowl event that number is usually significant. Can we elevate this to profiting off these childrens tragedy ? whos profiting ?

This GOV is going to milk it for everything they can.  And the Super Bowl sponsors are just as willing to give it to them the best they can deliver.

I wouldn't be surprised if Vegas has a number of odds playing on the choir.

It's a sick world.  And it keeps getting sicker the more the GOV interferes.

Nobody seems to remenber the 9/11 Never Forget BS that justified two violent and pointless wars and numerous violations of the peoples rights. But nooo Obama is on the other side so anything he does is setting the stage for a dictatorship.

I am not a man, merely a parody of one.

Exactly right.  This is part of the process of burning into the public perception the myth of Sandy Hook School.

Rather like making the movie Let's Roll reinforced the myth of Flight 93, and Zero Dark Thirty reinforces the myth of killing bin Laden.  Repeat a lie frequently enough, make a movie about it, and the gullible have it reinforced in their minds.

Now it appears that in March of 2011, Bing Earth pictures show that Sandy Hook Elementary was not even open. :cry:

Regardless of where one stands on the gun control issue, this is so incredibly...


...tacky.

I've already sent a message to the NFL expressing my opinion of this.  You can do the same:
