I was out running errands today when this astounding view caught me off guard. The flag, the sunset, the overcast, the mountains, even the snow and the cars; they all mixed together in a whirlwind of prodigious respect and gratitude.

Respect for the Prophet of the Church as well as this country. Gratitude for the affect he has had on my life and for the freedom I have in this country to believe in something and the right to practice those beliefs.

Sometimes I forget that not everyone in the world has the same freedoms I do. When I am reminded, it humbles me. I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.

Let the reason this flag is at half-mast be an inspiration to all. The time truly has come to stand a little taller.
