The address President Hinckley gave at a fireside some time ago and aired on BYU TV about his "Five Be's" is worthy of publishing in the ENSIGN or other Church publications so not only the youth of the Church can gleen the good but also the members all can too. Inspiring!!!!!!!!!!

When i was four the prophet came to tell us here in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia that we would be getting a temple. I remember afterwards getting to meet him and shake his hand. It was one of the most spiritual experiances of my life and even though i was only four years old i will always remember the strong feeling of the spirit i had with me through the rest of the week! President Hinckley will be greatly missed but at the same time, just think how he would have been greeted in heaven and how happy he must be to be with his wife again!

President Hinckley was a great inspiration in my life. He always had a joke and made things fun!

Funny guy! Kinda like Robin Williams on steroids, When Marg lift him he knew she ment bussness. Eather he quit work or she was going to heaven without him, and she did. Showing four years late is not going to go over real well. He so full of the spirit he couldn't stop himself. So little time, so much love. I'm sure she forgave him, arn't you. She had good teacher herself who keen on that sort of thing. We must forgive him now, a man can only give so much without a woman to stand by his side. He knew that and did everything he knew how to get her to stay,but in end we all are called. Once you've seen all there is left yet to do you, beg, you pray, just one more day. The Lord knows this and in the end the closer you come to his side the more love you begain to feel the clearer your understanding of what it means to be on this earth. A bounty beyound all our dreams, hopes, fears and dreams. Let it be a lesson to use all, Waist not Want not, of your life. Amen

"A Day of Celebration" was an event designed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Joseph Smith. President Hinckley turned it into a day for LDS youth all over the world to be together sharing their talents and just having fun. It was unforgettable!
