Toy Meltdown

I read a small notice (Jan. 30) giving information about the "War Toys Meltdown" and felt compelled to write this letter. You see, I, too am against war toys, but I find burning them is just defeating the purpose. To show our dislike of violent toys with such a violent action is absurd.

We are actually telling our children that what we don't like we can burn (i.e. kill).

There must be a peaceful way of demonstrating. This all reminds me a bit too much of book burning. Ignorance does not breed peace. Nor does any more violence.
