"What plagues America more than anything else is a sense of entitlement on the part of our population in which citizenship is seen as something that entails receiving without giving, obtaining government gifts without concomitant civic obligations, indulging in the blessings of America, without consecrating our lives as a blessing to our great Republic," Boteach said.


Amen to that.

Thank you for sharing these positive words from this thoughtful Rabbi. He recognizes that our missionaries do much general labor and service, beyond teaching the gospel. I agree with what he has said. Bless us ALL as we try to serve and shape America, and the world.


one of the most amazing things is how the youth are trained in responsibility from very young ages. they are expected to give talks in meetings. they are expected to perform Church duties. they are expected to serve. one church leader in a large city asked a stake president to please come to a meeting to teach their church how to succeed with their youth as the Mormon Church has done. The Stake President after much thought declined. he told them the youth had to be trained from early childhood.
