I can't begin to express the feelings of grief I had when I heard that the Provo Tabernacle had burned. The building meant so much to me. I grew up in Provo. It was part of my life. It represented the efforts of those who built it and was a reminder that "if they could do it, we can too." It was a reminder of devotion to a cause to promote beauty and goodness.
This building needs to be restored to prove that the legacy of our forebears is not dead and that we are made of the same determination and ability to rebuild this tabernacle as they were when they built it over a hundred years ago. It needs to stand as an icon to the strength of the people of Utah to protect what is beautiful and good and to remind us of our heritage.
