Adult Version: Debts that cannot be paid must be relieved. We demand freedom from servicing the debts we cannot pay.
"This 50th year is sacred—it is a time of freedom and of celebration when everyone will receive back their original property, and slaves will return home to their families."

I wonder how God provides all of the people and creatures on the Earth enough?
I wonder what it would be like to rest for an entire year? (No school, no work, just hanging out)
I wonder if everyone was able to have a nice home how that would change the world?
I wonder if all the people who were poor were forgiven their debts, how everyone would feel?
We hold up a moral agenda that demands health care, and jobs that pay a living wage, and a guaranteed adequate income, immigrant rights, women’s rights, and an end to police and policy violence. - Rev. Liz Theoharis
