“What about our time? Are there pioneering experiences for us? Will future generations reflect with gratitude on our efforts, our examples? You…can indeed be pioneers in courage, in faith, in charity, in determination.”
—Thomas S. Monson
The word “pioneer” is often associated with people who crossed oceans or prairies, invented something groundbreaking, or cured a disease. But the truth is, each of us is a pioneer in our own way, in our own time. Each of us does things every day that will leave a legacy for generations to come.
