"If you are faithful, the day will come when those deserving pioneers, whom you rightly praise, for having overcome the adversities in their wilderness trek, will instead praise you, for having made your way successfully through a desert of despair, for having passed through a cultural wilderness, and having kept the faith, for having been true to the faith. And yes, you will rightly go on praising them for what they did in their days, but one day, including some of your ancestors, [they] will praise you for having come safely home, through that cultural wilderness and that desert of despair. God bless you, in these your days! As those of us who love you and view you with a sense of anticipation are settled in our hearts and minds: You really are the Vanguard of those whom God promised to send in these the last days, of which I testify, as I encourage you to make of these days, "days never to be forgotten" in the history of the Church. And I do so in love, and as your brother, but most importantly for the purposes of this evening, I do so as an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, who has some sense of your future, and what you have the capacity to do. God Bless you."
Neal A. Maxwell, "Days Never To Be Forgotten", (C.E.S. Fireside address, given at BYU, May, 1995)
