"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Psalm 133: 1
Young, idealistic university students. They thought they could change the world.
Many years before, during what was to be later called the "French Revolution," the poor people revolted. The aristocracy was in danger because they were insensitive to the people's cries. After heads rolled, the common folk rejoiced that they had fought for freedom...and won. But did they?
Things went well for awhile. But then turned sour. The men who assumed leadership turned out to be worse for France than the Revolution itself. Then more years of crop failure. People were starving. Again. And they stole and fought for a loaf of bread...and more.
France again had a king who cared very little for those outside his circle. The poor begged for mercy. None was granted. The people wanted change. But this time, it was the university students who got the ball rolling. Their promised leader, General LaMarque, who cared for the common folks, had just died.
Together, they believed change could happen. No one else had a plan, so, why not? It was now up to the common people and the students with high ideals to fight for change. So, the young revolutionaries planed their strategy in the ABC café.
Do you have a cause worth fighting for?
