I don't get involved in conversations about this tragedy much anymore.

I don't know if this is a Government propaganda tool to keep the gun control conversation going or if it is just big media and business using it to get attention and thus viewers...either way, it smacks of exploitation to me.  

I think the children and the families need to have the opportunity to go through the various stages of grief before they are paraded in front of the nation like a side show display...

just my opinion though...

Grammy award-winning recording artist Jennifer Hudson will join the 26 students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in singing America the Beautiful during the Super Bowl XLVII pregame show on Sunday, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday.
It will be the second poignant Super Bowl pregame performance from Hudson, who performed the National Anthem before Super Bowl XLIII in what was her first public appearance after her estranged brother-in-law murdered her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.
The NFL invited the students to sing a little more than a month after 26 children and faculty members were killed in the tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The league is flying the students and their families to New Orleans later this week in advance of the performance, which will be broadcast live on CBS shortly before Alicia Keys performs the National Anthem.
The gesture will cap a season in which the league lent its support to the Newtown community via "S.H.E.S." stickers on helmets, personal messages on cleats and gloves, moments of silence before games and charitable donations for relief causes, as well other means of emotional support.
The New York Giants welcomed students and families onto the field during their pre game introductions before their Week 17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. http://www.freep.com...Entertainment|p

This is awful.. I can't believe the NFL would want to organise something like this in memory of those children who were blown away a month after it happened??.. AND WORSE the NFL are flying the children in to sing with Jennifer Hudson.. Sigh   It's a terrible thing.. and WORSE again, the New York Giants  welcomed these children with their families..  Has everyone gone bonkers?  The NFL  are lefties..   To make people show some support out of respect is plain low..   Lefies  the lot of them  ...Its a conspiracy.. to make you show support and remember those kids, the NFL are realy part of the anti gun club...Everyone should run out at half time to protest.. It's enough to put you off your hot dog....  *Shudders*  
No one has ever shown any support  or out of respect of any tragedy before in any sports stadium ...ever ...

That's how tacky american society is--we like to gawk and commiserate in public.

Once we are told a story, we like to repeat it ad nauseam, and wallow in it like hogs, NFL and all.  But at least the story, true or not, will be seared into the american psyche and the quaint history books.  Someday they will make a movie of it, probably with Bigelow in charge.  She laps up the propaganda quite well. :innocent:

The level of money changing hands is more then all of the people on this board will make this year Becky. Thats the disgusting part. The families are now in profit mode off there tragedy. All my sense of care over the event is gone because of things like this. My sympathy is only with those that lost there lives not the living.

I think it's exploitation... but you, obviously from behind your sarcasm...think it's a great idea to turn them into sideshow freaks...whatever...I disagree.  Has nothing to do with whether I think it was a Gov conspiracy or just big business using them.  My post above explains it...they need to be left alone to grieve...and even they might not realize that...but ask any psychologist.

It is possible that no children died Asteroid, so maybe you could take solace in that possibility?  I'm still undecided, but the longer it goes the thinner the ice gets.

Its shocking, the NFL doing this, organising such a thing with those kids from that school and their families a few weeks after it all happened..  They have to be lefties..  NFL =  National Federation Lefies ..   Anyone that goes to watch the superbowl is supporting the lefties ...  Once that Superbowl takes place, that's it, y'all might loose your rights to own guns..    In the words of  Rev Lovejoys wife from the Simpsons - "Won't  somebody PLEASE think of the children" ...  ..Wait that is what they are doing... never mind..   It's all too crazy..

That's exactly what it does... Those children singing a song in memory of their fellow students, would be one great big freak show.. I swear, people should protest it and leave after half time  OR not show up at all, that will show those NFL lefties what for....  This sort of thing has never went on in any football / sports stadium in history..    It will be another tragedy... In fact it will be so awful, that you all might need another service  in memory of the Super bowl  freak show..Perhaps gather a fund raiser - Money donated for the poor football fans that had to suffer watching a freak show of kids singing to remember their fellow school students ...All too terrible...

Heck, why not get them to perform at every NFL game. If I were a child that had seen 20 of my friends killed in cold blood i would want to be reminded of it every week, not just once on national tv & in front of 100,000 fans. Maybe if i get enough money in appearance fees i could be a career victim.

BR, you are, undoubtedly, one of the most irrational CT's out there.

If you were hit by a truck and smashed all over the pavement, you would still exclaim the truck never hit you.

That is one disturbingly twisted psyche.

Indeed, but the NFL would have to pay for it...

All of those kids saw the gunman shoot the other kids?  Right I didn't hear that part.. I read many were hiding at the time..  As you say, they saw it all,... in cold blood ..I am guessing singing might be the trick to help them ease that suffering.or add to their suffering...  . It must have been dreadful...  What ever where those kids, their families and the NFL thinking?   People have hot dogs to eat and giant beers to knock back, while they wait on the second half of the game.. It's so going to ruin everything..  The NFL really should have known better..   ..This is too much.....  

I bet the kids were put under pressure to do this and they are in protest over it..  They went kicking and screaming Nooooo please we don't want to sing ..

Quote

not just once on national tv & in front of 100,000 fans. Maybe if i get enough money in appearance fees i could be a career victim.   

Or world wide?   How about holding an annual memorial remembrance service too.every year?   OR same date every month.. You have to give them time to practice... right?

Even though this is just a one off  ( by the looks of it )  No one will ever be able to watch another NFL football again..In fact, many will be traumatised by these kids singing, they may hand in their weapons to the government, and say - Here take them, the song was just too much !!   I can see that happening

Someone has to stop those kids from getting up on stage to sing...Lock them all in a room with pizza and video games  or a nice book to read.. Until the half time show is over...It's the only way to avoid such a tragic football fan event from taking place... ..

For the sake of my own sanity am going to say children died but I get what your saying and am current on the CT. Itleast as of 3 days ago. I suppose this junk needs to be dumped into the CT of Sandy Hook as well. Will they accidentally allow one of the "dead" children to sing ?

Im still traumatized by Janet Jacksons boob falling out at halftime.

"Twisted pschye" is a relative thing, ya know?  That term could be used to describe about 75% of the population, maybe more.

It is possible that the casualties were faked.  After all, there were no pictures of them.  They said on TV that the parents would not be reunited with their children, I saw it myself.

So FO on your twisted psyche thing.  The government does worse things than that all the time.  It kills people all around the globe every day.  Why would it NOT fake a school massacre?  Go through the motions, and call it a FEMA exercise.  Sell it to the media, like they did at Waco.

No. All the victims are very much DEAD.
Singing in heaven, maybe.
