"We face many challenges, and there will likely be greater challenges in the years ahead. How important it is for us to reach out and link arms with each other -especially with those who may feel they don't belong, for whatever reason- so that none of us is standing alone. We can essentially do what those redwoods do with their roots. We will then be able to face the challenges of life with much more strength and hope because we will be standing together. And, even more important, as we make covenants with the Savior, our roots will be intertwined with His as well."
