When I read your post I expected to see a picture of the Kennedys.
Sorry for the eleven year old but I would have no problem telling him nor lose a night of sleep that mommy and daddy did something illegal and that is why they are not coming back.
That's pretty harsh, don't you think? It makes me a little uncomfortable that you're involved in educating kids, actually. I have to think if you were really faced with an actual 11 year old who'd just lost his parents you'd feel differently.
