Did Nobody on the Planning Committee Think of This?

Last week, the high school here in town (the one I happened to graduate from) held their 2007 graduation.

It seems that, to honor a beloved art teacher who died during this past school year, they had a flame-lighting ceremony where 4 students with long bbq lighters lit a lamp at the same time.

Lovely, right?

Except that it seems a bit insensitive when you find out that the teacher they were honoring died because his house exploded in a BALL of FLAMES and he died of extreme burns over 80% of his body.

Is it just me, or do you think maybe flowers or some nice little water feature would have been more appropriate? Maybe it’s just me…
