Would you or I have this kind of courage?

This courageous young woman Marie Cardon defended the truth at the risk of her own life.

Would you or I have that kind of faith or courage?

Bonnie Oscarson is the voice we hear in the video:

"If it is the Lord’s plan, it should also be our plan! ... The Lord needs us to be brave, steadfast, and immovable warriors who will defend His plan and teach the upcoming generations His truths" (Bonnie Oscarson, "Defenders of the Family Proclamation," Ensign, May 2015).

Her story reminds me of President Monson's experience of daring to stand alone.

As we get closer to the Second Coming, we're likely to have more moments where we must stand alone in defending truth.

Each time we practice choosing right even when it's not popular, our ability to choose the unpopular right becomes stronger. It helps to remember to look up, not sideways. We want to be on God's side of the line, no matter what anyone around us chooses.
