McCullough is the premier historian of our time, we attended the event last night and was so impressed with his insight, humor, and wisdom. He is a national treasure.


I was there last night and it was a wonderful night of music, mixed with reminders of turning our hearts to both ancestors and children/grandchildren. McCullough and Eyring were both eloquent and entertaining, throwing in a few jokes here and there.


I think we belong, unconditionally, without justification from family. Face it, there are certainly were family members that, given a choice, we'd want nothing to do with. We belong, and who we are is a manifestation of ourselves, here and now. Celebrate you.


I support the removal or "self made man" from our vocabulary. Very incitefull wisdom.


I'm glad David McCullough has had such frequent linking with LDS culture--Pres. Hinckley in the past, and more recently as well.

He is such a wonderful writer. You can not read his books without being absolutely drawn in by his ability to make history riveting.
