Wherefore, honest men and wise men should be sought for diligently, and good men and wise men ye should observe to uphold; (D&C 98:10)

Life, Faith and Family

What a moving video!  I transcribed it here
This November, America's future hangs in the balance.  Catholics across the nation will have the responsibility to make their voices heard. Many issues are at stake. Some are more important than others.  No issue can be ignored, but none are more crucial to the foundation of our country than Life and Family.  The family must be strengthened not redefined. Human life is paramount and must be protected from conception to natural death.

Catholics have been integral to the success of America. Since the beginning, Catholic immigrants helped build this country and their children fought to preserve it. Now, more than any other time in history, a new generation must stand for truth. The strength of our nation is not only in its military or economic power, but in our commitment to moral values.  For the good of the world, 67 million catholics in America, working alongside countless others, can protect the values this great nation was built upon: Life, Faith and Family.

This election day, everything you hold sacred will need your vote. Vote your conscience.
This message will touch many more people of faith than just Cathloics.  Stand up and be counted.  Fear not the shame of the world.  Fight for the good and honest.  In every place there are good people running for office, seek them out.  Find someone you trust and ask their opinion.

Moroni was a prophet and a captain in an army to defend the liberty of an ancient people.  This is what he did to rouse the people to fight for the truth.
He rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole. 

And he fastened on his head-plate, and his breastplate, and his shields, and girded on his armor about his loins; and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his rent coat, (and he called it the title of liberty) and he bowed himself to the earth, and he prayed mightily unto his God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren Alma 46:12-13
Our democratic republic will only stand as long as there are many good people willing to act.  Be willing to spend some time and energy to find out what is being decided this election.  Help a friend register to vote.  Choose wise people to represent you.

If not now, when?  If not you, then who?
