"The fight for freedom is God's fight.
So when a man stands for freedom he stands with God.
And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God.
And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God.
A man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."
--Ezra Taft Benson

Where is Daddy?

This trial has been extremely hard for our children to understand where their daddy is.  It is also hard for them to understand why their dad can't come home.  It has been hard to explain to each one of the kids where their dad is and why he is not able to come home.  But the child who struggles the most with this is our little three year old.  I have had to talk with him several times to try to explain where his Daddy is because he has overheard others talking about it.  But he told me that just bad guys go to jail and his daddy is a good guy.  I have decided that he is way to young to comprehend what is happening and he is only three so give the kid a break.  He knows that his dad is a good daddy and that he doesn't belong in Jail.  So for the last three months this little guy keeps believing that his dad isn't in jail but is flying an airplane in the sky.  This little guy waves to his dad everytime he hears an airplane. This breaks my heart when he does this because his dad should be home with him but it actually puts a smile on his little face.  I did not put this thought into his mind but instead that is where he believes his daddy is.  His daddy used to take him flying with him.  They loved to go on flights together.   These little kids shouldn't have to struggle.  It is just not fair.  His daddy should be home with him flying high in the sky.  Free the Political Prisoners.
