Quote of the Moment

The United States will spend her strength and means warring in foreign lands until other nations will say, “Let’s divide up the lands of the United States”.

Joseph Smith, Jr

 

Prophecy by Joseph Smith, Mosiah Hancock Journal, pp. 19-20

 

(note: this statement, attributed to Joseph Smith, was written down about 50-years
after when it was supposedly said, and, as a result, should be taken with a grain of salt)

America's Birthday

The 4th of July is coming up.  The day represents a lot of things to a lot of people.  Some many think “Yeah, a day off work!”.  Others “We get to blow stuff up”.  Still others may just think of it as the day between July 3 and July 5.  To me, I think of the freedoms we have in this country.  As previous Blogs will attest, I don’t think we are perfect.  However, I think we are trying to be.  Let us remember on our Nation’s 230rd birthday!
