First Post

-To start off this blog, I thought I'd post some thoughts expressed by one of my favorite leaders:

“We should, of course, respect the opinions of others, but we should also be unafraid to dissent – if we are informed. . . Only error fears freedom of expression. . . People should express their problems and opinions and be unafraid to think without fear of ill consequences. . . We should be dauntless in our pursuit of truth and resist all demands for unthinking conformity. . . Tolerance and truth demand that all be heard and that competing ideas be tested against each other so that the best, which might not always be our own, can prevail.”

- Elder Hugh B. Brown (LDS Apostle who also served in the First Presidency) (An Abundant Life: The Memoirs of Hugh B. Brown p.138)
