I agree they could have used less tragic imagery. There are positive moments in history that are memorable as well. "If it bleeds, it leads" should not apply with children.

The assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy must be very disturbing for most Americans…but I think that’s what they’re trying to do here…make knowledge reach these kids in a very subtle manner…and showing that as compared to kids watching stuff like Southpark (which I personally love watching) I think is far more educating and definitely less “disturbing”.

have to agree that the visuals could carry positive messages instead of the tragedy & war etc (even though these are integral parts of history)...I think the children of today are so exposed to violence through all sources of media & if we can conscientiously stop that somewhere it would help

Whoever is asking "why are they disturbing":

They are disturbing because they are trivializing tragic moments where people were murdered and making them cute. This isn't the way to educate children about the darker times in history. Why? for the same reason we don't explain that grandpa "went to the clouds" when he dies. Be honest and upfront with children to educate them. Do not talk down to them as these ads do.

History happened and it is very disturbing that thare are so many ignorent people leaving remarks that these ads are wrong. These ads are a very simple and telling the story understandable for kids. Free your mind, just a little bit please!

In regards to his living family and families who survived war and terrorism...I think these ads lack class and respect for people who lost their lives trying to live a more peaceful life. These ads need to be buried along with your want to be an ad designer career. Have some respect for the dead or they could come back and haunt u. But in your case I see your reason for not putting your full name on your comments I can't blame you. Because it sounds like a lot of people from America would haunt you down a kick your ass then you would be history.
