"Many young eyes are prematurely old"

Tricia and I decided that we'll mainly use this blog for sharing personal stories, but I just love this quote that came in the email a few weeks ago, and thought it fit better here than on my languishing "professional" blog:

"Paul Harvey, a famous news commentator, visited one of our Church school campuses some years ago. Later he observed: 'Each . . . young face mirrored a sort of . . . sublime assurance. These days many young eyes are prematurely old from countless compromises with conscience. But [these young people] have that enviable headstart which derives from discipline, dedication, and consecration' (news broadcast, Dec. 8, 1967, typescript, 1)."

(James E. Faust, "The Light in Their Eyes," Ensign, Nov. 2005, 20)
