Elder Oaks's talk at General Conference

This is Elder Dallin H. Oaks, an apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  On Saturday afternoon he gave a very interesting talk about protecting our children.

His talk is summarized as follows:
Children are highly vulnerable. They have little or no power to protect or provide for themselves and little influence on so much that is vital to their well-being. Children need others to speak for them, and they need decision makers who put their well-being ahead of selfish adult interests.

We are all under the Savior’s command to love and care for each other and especially for the weak and defenseless.
This is a 0:46 excerpt from a longer talk and I wish everyone would take his words to heart.
