Out of the mouth of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes. — Psalms 8:2
Jesus said to them, “Yes, have you never read, ‘Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babes you have prepared praise for yourself?’ — Matthew 21:16
One couldn’t help but notice that yesterday tens of thousands of children spoke by walking out of their classrooms. We may all have different interpretations about yesterday’s events, but whatever your political persuasion this action has meaning and gives a voice to the millions of boys and girls around the world who experience abuse and violence.
Children suffer from hunger, neglect, drugs, wars, abuse, sexual exploitation, and random acts of violence. Yesterday was a cry from our children who ask to be heard. Their lives are fragile and their future is uncertain. They will make their voices heard, and they will make the hearts of the unjust tremble.
