>Most broadcast outlets, both local and national, had features on the war's impact on children in this country. PBS has been handling it better than most, with Fred Rogers (left) taping a series of spots that aired between shows. In his measured, pediatric tone, Rogers encouraged kids to express their thoughts and feelings about the fighting to loved ones and urged parents to assure them that "they will always have someone who will take care of their needs no matter what." PBS stations across the country also broadcast Kids Ask About War, a half-hour special hosted by Peggy (Newton's Apple) Knapp, in which children aged 9 to 13 posed questions to a panel of experts, including Denise McNaught, an expert on adolescent grief, and Doyle Larson, a retired Air Force general.
