Re: The Bonding with 6 min of extra footage

So Roddenberry said Children don't grieve and death is accepted as a normal part of life... Ok, there's just one problem with that.

EVERYONE ELSE in this episode spends most of the time grieving! Worf grieves, Riker grieves, Wesley grieves, even Picard grieves a bit in front of Jeremy. Heck, near the end Picard has this to say.

Picard: Jeremy must come to terms with his grief.
It's like a life guard telling people that there's no diving in the pool, but seconds later allows everyone to dive.
