Honoring Pioneers

Today is Pioneer Day, and here in Utah it is a statewide holiday. Most communities have big celebrations going on, and most people get the day off of work. In Utah, Pioneer Day is a pretty big deal.

This is a great day to reflect on the pioneers who have affected our lives. As Elder Oaks says in the following video, a pioneer is anyone who forges on ahead in order to show others the way. Pioneers live in every time, including ours.

Today I am going to think about my ancestors, and others in my life who have shown me how to live, as I celebrate.

What pioneers have shown you the way?
