They are only children

One of the first songs the two of us ever learned was Jesus Loves the Little Children.

We are not alone. To see our fellow Christian brothers and sisters protesting the temporary placement (and care) of God’s children is sad and disheartening.

We are so fortunate to be born into the greatest and most prosperous nation in the world.

Dear friends: We can handle this. The children are just children. They are not terrorists, nor are they infected with incurable diseases.

— Jim and Bonnie Hardy, Arlington
