    1st September, 1st day at school.

    ( security and police presence was VERY strict out here. and since i was not a parent with kids at school, and - only - walking the dog, no pictures...)

    13 million pupils back to school.
    and the first years STILL look great with their big white pompoms (?) and ribbons ion their hair.
    the oldest student carrying the youngest on his shoulder, ringing the bell, - no ladna - it was many years ago....
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    Why are not pictures permitted?
    Government is like Fertilizer. A little is good, too much is a pile of crap.

    i was no parent, did have no kids in school. for that reason i was not permitted or allowed to make photos. and the police were polite, so why start an argument...

    Oh so you do understand.


    Beslan is the real reason why Russia wants to protect or control September 1.


    One of, or the most dramatic terrorist attacks ever. Three days of hell for the people of Russia.

    Never, ever should this happen again. Never should we forget. September 1 is now not only a celebration of the education of our children but also that some are ready to give their life protecting our children.

    For me, I haven't forgotten what happened on this day. I will never be caught criticizing Russia for any security measure they come up with for September 1st.
    Colluding with Russians since 1995

    Beslan tragedy has something to do with it, especially the physical security seen on 1 Sep, but if you recall the majority of weapons and ammunition were stached in the school over the summer holidays......

    Yes but pictures taken on September 1 could be used in the planning.

    since the school was also a location for the election, could have been an extra precaution.but the law was friendly enough, so i did not object.
