Prophetic Optimism

A writer for Deseret News sat next to President Hinckley one night at a dinner and was impressed with his optimism.
As for me, I now have a new motto. In fact, I think it is how I will remember President Hinckley. The eternal optimist — literally eternal — who will always bow in reverence, but never in defeat.
A man whose departing words to us were through a smile.
"The best is yet to come."
This is in the face of terrible suffering around the world and on the horizon. The good which is coming will far outweigh the bad.
