    Thanks ARJ and annegb. And John M., I'm not fiamliar with that suggestion from Elder Packer, but it seems like a beautiful idea. I think my parents would be touched by such consideration.I think it's also important that family members who cannot enter the temple because they are not members of the Church know that there are others who are members of the church but may not be able to attend the sealing because they have not received their endowment or because there simply may not be room for all who want to attend.When my parents dropped me off at the Missionary Training Center before my mission my mother was in tears and felt like the other mothers couldn't understand or that it wasn't hard for them because they knew it was coming. But one of the other mothers explained that even though she had years to prepare for this moment, it still didn't make it easy. It helped my mom to know she wasn't alone in her feelings.

    Howard – you should have called out Hugh Hewitt on his comment about funding of PBS. I laughed looking at the TV schedule, seeing that PBS is they only network covering the whole convention!

    Gentlemen:

    I think Mr. Hewitt should be called, instead, William F. Romney.

    Dinesh D'Souza should be renamed Mahatma Romney.

    Or Mohandas Romney.

    I watched Mr. D'Souza's movie, so now I'm an expert.

    Let's re-title the movie: "Obama, Where Art Thou?"

    Have a Dovely.

    Sincerely yours,
    Caleb Boone.

    I thought that someone should have called out Hugh Hewitt for repeating the "You did not build it". No one said it was taken out of context.

      That comment was every bit in content. It was a slip up that showers success comming from the power of the collective and not the initative of the individual. Obama shows his true colors when he goes off script. That's why the constant TelePrompTer.
