I asked Laura and Dylan if they had any idea what they were doing and they said they didn't.
I told them I didn't really like what Palm Sunday signified because it shows one of the fatal weaknesses of men - and it's a pattern of behavior that has been exhibited all throughout history.
I explained to them that the people of Jerusalem welcomed Jesus so warmly, expecting him to thwart the reign of the Roman empire, and when that didn't happen, in a dramatic turnaround, they turned their backs on him and wanted him crucified.
When Jesus was being persecuted and ridiculed, none of them came to his defense or aid.
It takes a very brave person to turn against popular sentiment. We saw that happen when the Jews were being persecuted in Europe. A few brave people hid them from the Nazis knowing very well, that if they were discovered, they would pay for their offense dearly.
Today, the Syrian refugees who have nowhere to go are being turned away by their European neighbors and are caught in the crossfire between government and rebel forces.
Even in my own country, everyone has to be labeled either for the Yellow group or the Duterte group, which I find very simplistic. There have been so many political machinations on both sides, I have decided to just not listen anymore and just concentrate on the work that I can contribute to the society.
