Title Lest We Forget
Description tenderly take mother's hand in his and softly say, "Darling, it has been a happy day." Somehow the cares and worries would vanish and hopes for the future were bright. This was the golden age in family relations when trust was seldom betrayed and when faith in the Gospel and it's saving principles was unquestioned, when family happiness was the central aim of each family member. It was an age when each little sett lement was half a days ride, by horse, from the next. It was an age when self-reliance, predicated upon an unwavering faith in a living GodT was the common den-ominator that made worthwhile things happen. It was an age when the distance from the all-wise Creator was never farther than your desire to serve Him with all your might, mind and strength. It was an age when the power of the Priesthood was used with such frequency that faith, in administration was made manifest. Through the years the ever rewarding life of little settlements, many times removed from the main-stream of society, has slowly receded before consolidation, good roads and fast cars. The fast pace of modern civilization tends to weaken the solidarity of the Latter-day Saint unit. But, in spite of noticeable change which crowds in around us with consistent force, yet we sincerely realize those divine virtues, lived so well then, are just as important for our happiness today.
