Happy Independence Day!
And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man;
he was a man of a perfect understanding;
yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed;
a man whose soul did joy in the liberty
and the freedom of his country,
and his brethren from bondage and slavery;
Yea, a man whose heart did swell with
thanksgiving to his God,
for the many privileges and blessings which
He bestowed upon his people;
a man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people.
Yea, and he was a man who was
firm in the faith of Christ,
and he had sworn with an oath to
defend his people,
and his country,
and his religion,
even to the loss of his blood.
Yea, verily, verily I say unto you,
if all men had been, and were, and ever would
be, like unto Moroni,
behold, the very powers of
hell would have been shaken forever;
yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men.
