Previous ties to this blog: zero
Perhaps I'm a horrible person, but I get an inordinate amount of pleasure from reading and making fun of this editorial from the Church News that I read on my mission (I actually taped it up on my refrigerator so my companion and I could enjoy it every day). It is a good message and all, certainly one I wholeheartedly agree with: our service and good deeds can have long-lasting positive impacts on people for years to come. However, I really must take exception to the fifth-grade-esque, ridiculous tone of the whole thing. "Why Norway? Because it was there. And they wanted to see it." I'm sorry, but I will always laugh whenever I think of that line, as well as many others from this gem.
Ironically enough, this is probably the only Church News editorial to have a lasting impact on my life, and I'll probably never forget it :)
