Has Safety Gone too Far?

According to Linn’s Stamp News a set of stamps designed to encourage kids to be more active is about to be destroyed because three of the 15 stamps in the set show activities that are done “unsafely” according to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. The offending stamps are 1. an image of a child doing a handstand without wearing a helmet (top row, fourth from the left) 2. a child skateboarding without knee pads (second row, second from the left) and 3. a kid doing a cannoball into a pool (bottom row, third from the left).


The president’s wife Michelle Obama was scheduled to take part in the launch ceremony for the stamps.

What do you say? Should we destroy the stamps or not?
