In this guest essay, David Marks, a 2022 CHD fellow (Children’s Health Defense) and a veteran journalist and filmmaker, takes a few steps back to look at the unfolding of pandemic events with the experience of children in mind.

There is a rational, conscientious course correction: supporting a world that ensures children’s freedom from all forms of abuse, indoctrination, coercion, and unnecessary inoculations.
