On one level, sounds great; on another, sounds like "Great White 
Father" (see http://itf.typepad.com/about.html) gives virtual tools 
from afar to fighting children to assuage their misery -- what is the 
use of a virtual tool when bombs are raining down in meatspace? 
I'm suspicious of the raw use of the term "voices being heard."
