In a most politically incorrect satire on the status of the Emperor and the High Priest, Jesus said that children are the “greatest in Heaven’s domain.” Matt. 18:4.

For the first several centuries of the Christian era people portrayed Jesus as a child to help remember his “greatest” statement. I made a sketch of Jesus as a child, based upon the Roman sarcophagus of Junius Bassus, 357 A.D.

The chapter entitled “Downside Up” in Green Kingdom Come! shows that children are the greatest in the domain of aroma, of touch, and of imagination

Thus young Americans, with the greatest sensitivities in smell, touch, and intuition, need to be freed to help guide adults in the green movement. No child must be left inside. Earth community must become the primary classroom of children.
