“God’s children are not for sale” is the tagline for the movie Sound of Freedom. Robin and I went to the theatre to see the movie this past week. And here is my simple movie review: everyone within the sound of my voice or reading my words should see this movie.
There are some beliefs that should unite everyone, everywhere, and this movie gives us an example: all children should be protected. The movie is based on the true story of Tim Ballard; you can find a link to his life and work at the end of this Truth in Two. Mr. Ballard is a former special agent for the Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Ballard now dedicates himself to finding children who have been sexually enslaved through the organization, Operation Underground Railroad.
Movies move us and the story in Sound of Freedom is compelling. Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of The Christ, plays special agent Ballard. His work in Homeland Security is to track down and stop pedophiles who are trafficking children in the sex trade.
