He Stood for Something.

In Loving Memory of President Gordan Bitner Hinckley.
Passed away January 27, 2008

Today in our team meeting at work, we talked about the passing of President Hinckley. Tim, our CEO said how funny it is when we are shocked that a 97 year old man like our prophet, passes away. It's true. When my best friend text me about the news, I was VERY shocked. But why? Hello, he WAS 97 YEARS OLD!!! I guess for me, he's been around since I like 15 years old. He was my hero, no doubt and I just thought he'd be there for the rest of my life. Did I really think he wouldn't move on? When I talked to my mom about this last night, she said that he must be so happy he's with his wife now. Although, I'm very happy for the both of them, I told my mom, "Yeah, but doesn't He know that I NEED him?!?!" Very selfish I know... But I love him! For me, he was very uplifting and encouraging. I loved his optimism. I really could have listened to his amazing talks forever! Way to be Pres. H! I love you.

There is so much good in the worst of us, And so much bad in the best of us, That it hardly becomes any of us to talk about the rest of us.~Edward Wallis Hoch

I found this quote on my mother's email signature. I have met some people that have done some pretty serious things and have been shunned by others, but yet, there's still so much good in them. We each have so much amazing potential to become great people and when others see/point out the worst in us, it becomes harder for us to become who we need to and make the changes we need to make in this life. When our good is brought out, it is uplifting and creates a desire in most of us to reach that potential and be who others believe we really are inside.
