I appreciate very much the high honor of this privilege to share my reflections with you this afternoon. At the outset, I confess that I consider myself a “son of Scotland” if somewhat removed. My maternal grandfather, Joseph Mitchell, was born and reared in Dalry, Ayrshire, and I lived in Scotland for two years while serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have returned multiple times. My love and admiration for this nation and its people are deep and abiding.
