"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

The News that is "Real" to us

Every once in awhile a news story grabs a hold of me and hangs on. Such is the news of Elder Morgan Winslow Young. He was killed in Chesapeake, Virginia while serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This story hits a little closer to home for me as I served a similar mission in Virginia many years ago.

It is the stories where we find a part of ourselves in them that make them "real" for us. Such is the case with this story I read today.

BLESSED ARE YE WHEN MEN SHALL ... by Bob Lonsberry (Written January 5, 2006)

Beware! You will need tissues.

Thank you Bob for putting into words what I could not.
