Late last week, families associated with Parents for Occupy Wall St. staged a march in New York City to decry police brutality toward OWS protesters.
Children created and decorated 5,000 paper hearts–each one representing a peaceful protester who was arrested on behalf of the Occupy Wall Street movement in the three month period leading up to the march.
The plan was to deliver the hearts to City Hall, where Mayor Bloomberg could see them and think about the statement of violence his “army” has made to children around the world.
No one could have expected the cruel manner in which the children and their parents would be received. Watch the video below to see what happened and think about what this teaches our children about the value of peace.
