Porter's Loyalty and Happy Birthday!

Yesterday, June 27th, was the anniversary of Joseph Smith's death.  Today, June 28th, we celebrate the 202nd birthday of Orrin Porter Rockwell.  I celebrate his loyalty and his tenacity.  
Lately in the "news" we've been subjected to someone who displays the opposite of Porters good traits.  There have been those who think they know best, and have fought against the Church they profess to support.  If Porter were here, he might have not been very charitable toward this arrogant attitude.  I myself have difficulty being non- judgmental against someone who flaunts their attitude and shows a great disloyalty to the Church because of their cause.  Since these are not Porters days I won't do any shooting.
Remember Porter and the loyalty he displayed to the Prophet Joseph Smith, and to the Church and do as he did. (No, I don't mean shoot someone!)

Remember this quote also:

"Good people sleep peaceably in their bed at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf”
