I had a realization this year this year that I wanted to share with you. If we want our children to know the history of America- including the inspiration and sacrifice of our forefathers and our foremothers, the deliverance of our people from bondage, and especially the story of a merciful God that answers heartfelt pleas to Him and leads his children to safety and freedom- it’s on us. And that means I have a lot of work to do.
The media isn’t teaching us, popular culture definitely isn’t teaching us, and the watered-down history books in our schools usually fail us in inspiring the cause of freedom. It’s becoming crystal clear to me that we as a society know very little about how we got here- and watching our sacred monuments (many that celebrate freedom from slavery and oppression) be defaced and destroyed before our eyes is an all too recent and relevant example.
The scriptures are overflowing with references to what happens when people forget the deliverance of their Fathers and Mothers. When we forget, we fall into bondage. It’s happening now. I feel like I have failed in the past- but as I look to this strong and wise upcoming generation- I can feel this incredible hope. They are inspiring me to remember the legacy of those that have gone before- instead of the other way around. Together we can unite with all of our brothers and sisters and repair a very broken system.
“Will the Constitution be destroyed? No: it will be held inviolate by this people; and, as Joseph Smith said, ‘The time will come when the destiny of this nation will hang upon a single thread. At that critical juncture, this people will step forth and save it from the threatened destruction.’ It will be so.” -Brigham Young, 2nd President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
