What Do You Think?

It’s beginning to snow here in upstate New York, and so although we’re still a bit early for the Holiday build-up, I’m posting about a little controversy, and I’d love to hear your opinions.

Another author friend posted the following Christmas ad from Sainsbury’s (a UK-based supermarket). I was immediately drawn to the historical context of the ad, but some viewers of it found it offensive or disrespectful, according to some written commentary I’ve seen.

Have a watch, if you’re so inclined, and then please share your thoughts in the comments. Do you think it’s heartwarming or disrespectful?  I have my own opinions, but of course I’d like to hear yours before chiming in with mine! 🙂
