Late last year, I happened to catch part of Elder Holland's CES fireside on lessons learned from the Liberty Jail. I was profoundly moved, as the passages of scripture we have from this difficult time have been consistently important to me, and I have turned to them time after time when I've needed more understanding about what I've experienced.
When I saw the talk reprinted in the BYU alumni magazine that came today, I was struck again. It's just so beautiful, and so true. The idea of our most horrific times as temple-prisons...I can't do it justice. Read the talk. Here it is.
