What is happening to our world and to this great country? I feel very disturbed by all of the conflict going on here at home and in other countries. We are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. We are all spirit brothers and sisters. We lived among each other in the Premortal life before we were sent here by our Heavenly Parents to obtain bodies and experience earth life.
We all have the agency to choose how we act or react to the multitude of experiences that we will have while on this earth. There was a war in Heaven before we came to earth, and now it continues on down here. I find that so sad.
I have noted in the last few several weeks many hot debated issues. Why can't we all just get along? Yes, we all have different opinions and beliefs. There are so many issues out there. There are political issues, religious debates, racial struggles, and COVID 19 issues. I think we should agree to disagree and then just be kind and patient with one another. I think we can stand for what we individually believe and, at the same time, have a loving concern for others who have different beliefs.
This great country was founded on freedom. We all desire to be free men and women. I am hoping that we might take the counsel above and "Be a little more kind, more patient, more loving, more optimistic, more giving, more compassionate, and more charitable.
This year on the 4th of July, may I invite you to join me in making the commitment to cease our contentions and help to support and keep the Constitution of the United States viable. May we continue to be a free country, whereas individuals we have our agency to choose for ourselves the path we want to take. May we protect this freedom.
Today in closing, I thought I would share a cute little video of my precious Granddaughter, Averi, at the age of 6 playing: "When The Saints Come Marching In." What is impressive is she is blind and Austicitic and plays the piano by ear. She also likes to improvise. In this video, her cousin Levi snuck in. She is now 17 years old and still plays, but not as much.
