What do you think of when you consider the crowd that waved palm branches and shouted, “Hosanna” as Jesus entered Jerusalem?
Maybe you think of children waving palm branches. They were unaware of the significance of that parade. But they knew fun when they saw it. Perhaps they noticed Jesus as one who actually cared about them. Maybe they hardly noticed him as they played with their friends. It is interesting to me that in the middle of such a critical moment of the Gospel, children are in the center of the action. They are not put off to the side or told to be quiet. It is a day for them. It still is.
