Inspirational Thought

"The best food storage is not in welfare grain elevators but in sealed cans and bottles in the homes of our people. What a gratifying thing it is to see cans of wheat and rice and beans under the beds or in the pantries of women (and men) who have taken welfare responsibility into their own hands. Such food may not be tasty, but it will be nourishing if it has to be used."

President Gordon B. Hinckley (1910-2008)
"In the Arms of His Love," Liahona, November 2006

***words in italics added by me, but I don't think Pres. Hinckley would mind.

It's not under the beds and in the closets. It's spilling out of the storage room, covering half of the family room in the basement. We have so much we can't move. But if we need it, we'll not go hungry. We eat it all the time anyway.
