Watched a programme today about WW1 and it spoke of a daylight air raid on London in 1917.One bomb went through the roof of a school it passed through the top floor killing a little girl as it went passing through the second floor it killed a little boy and went on to explode on the ground floor killing a further 16.According to the head teachers log book this happened shortly before noon and the school was closed for the rest of the day,however the school was open the very next morning and life continued on.If that were to happen today the school would be shut for days,there'd be masses of flowers at least one candle lit vigil and the rest of the pupils offered counselling.Is this different attitudes or different circumstances?

I saw that, and also quite a few more that the BBC have been showing. Some really good programmes.  Certainly today's snowflake generation wouldn't have coped too well with that. Unfortunately I doubt if any of them are watching these programmes.:y

There are plenty of respectable, and respectful young people about, they just don't make it on to the news. Personally, I'm not that surprised that they don't show an interest in a war that happened a hundred years ago, it's ancient history to them.

This ^^^^^,Im really fortunate to have two young lads who have been brought up to respect others,sadly a lot of kids nowadays have no guidance :-\

Some of todays generation are undoubtedly a woosy bunch of morons, but by no means all.
It seems that terrible situations being out the best in British people, which has been demonstrated when we have terrorist attrocites and suchlike, when people seem to pull together and suddenly rediscover a sense of community to help those affected.
