Parents Let Kids Play On Vietnam War Memorial

Parents visiting Washington, D.C. with their kids this week sparked outrage and controversy by encouraging them to climb and play on the Vietnam Women’s Memorial, which honors U.S. women who served in Vietnam. What do you think?

“Listen, if you know a better way to get children ready for naptime besides letting them climb all over a solemn tribute to fallen veterans, I’m all ears.”

“Everyone honors veterans differently.”

“If you don’t want kids playing on your memorial, don’t make it such a fun reminder of the cost of war.”
