Posted On FEMA Site, Online Kiddie Coloring Book Depicted World Trade Center Attack

For those who didn’t know, FEMA has a website just for kids where they can choose a page and using online tools color it in right on their computer screen. Sounds pretty cool huh? As if kids don’t have enough stuff going on in their lives to keep them busy they can now go to a taxpayer funded federal government website to do their doodling.

Interestingly, someone at FEMA thought it would be a terrific idea to add some pages to the site depicting the aftermath of airplanes running into the World Trade Center that the little kiddies can get right to work on in their spare time. These coloring book pages showed one of the twin towers on fire with flame and smoke pouring out of the windows and an airplane in flight heading right for one of the buildings just before impact. Honest, I couldn’t make something like this up if I tried.

Needless to say many parents blew a gasket over this and FEMA eventually decided to remove the offending material. My question would be why was it ever posted on the site to begin with? What yeahoo couldn’t foresee the kind of problems something like this would create? Who knows, maybe the same person that approved the VC-25 flight over New York City the other day was also responsible for this mental malfunction.

A page showing fire, severe weather, and flooding, all disasters that can have an impact on a family, especially children. All of these disasters were featured in a coloring book on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s website, designed to help children cope with disasters.

But one page has parents taking the colors away. It’s an illustration of the World Trade Center Towers in New York. One of the towers has smoke coming out of it while a plane looks to be heading towards the other.

“They like to color happy pictures not pictures like that I don’t think I would like to give my child these kids of pictures to color,” said parent Brandy Greer.
