It is difficult to watch this video without reminding ourselves of similar circumstances within our lives where either our own children, or those who are close to us have suffered something similar that reminds us how tender life can be. I think we each try and take that challenge and do something with it to bless the lives of others. It never fully takes that pain away, but it does help us channel it in a way that can bless the lives of others. As the Savior has said, when we lose our lives in service to others, we really find ourselves.
|My older brother Milton, who passed away|
While we are blessed in this life by the compassion of others, we are also blessed with peace on this Easter Sunday with the knowledge that we will be resurrected and can be with each other for eternity. While I do not know the day I will see my older brother, I do also know that he lives and I will be with him one day, along with my family, my wife Cathy and our children. I am grateful for the peace this brings in my own life.
