Her conclusion in this video, is spot on. It’s why I choose to stay, despite the horrible things that have been said and done in history, and the horrible things that have been said and done to me personally.
People are not God.
And people, no matter how awful, cannot steal away the love and light I feel in my heart when I pray like I’m talking to my best friend, and reach out to Him, and study to listen. People cannot change the miracles that I have experienced as I have clung to that love and that light. I wouldn’t be as healed as I am, as sane as I am; I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish what I have, and straight up—I wouldn’t be here at *all*, if it wasn’t for that love and that light. It’s real. He’s real. And His perfect love is real. And no amount of crappy people, whether they’re a snobby, cruel bishop or group of members or a prejudice leader or a snobby returned missionary (I’ve been scarred deeply at the hands of all of them), can change that, or take it away.
Those are my thoughts. And everyone should watch this video. And um… the end.
