Have you seen the new Bennetton ads? I debated posting the pictures I am referring to for you to see.
I decided against it.
Sure, you can google it and find them right away. Google them with Obama, with the Pope, with others.
But do I really want that displayed on my blog? Do I want to further the success of the ads?
I am sad. So very sad that when I turn on the morning news, this is the first thing that my family sees.
I am sad that my 8 year old son was exposed to this today. I could see the confusion in his eyes.
I am sad that this company thinks this is the best way to express "peace" among people.
I am sad that these type of photos are the norm in our culture.
And I am sad that they are now considered a success because of all the attention they have garnered.
