SALT LAKE CITY -- As the anniversary of the September 11th attacks approaches, President Thomas S. Monson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says the tragedy prompted Americans to rebuild themselves spiritually.
In Thursday's Washington Post opinion-editorial, President Monson said people of all faiths united, but that devotion has wavered.
He wrote: "If there is a spiritual lesson to be learned from our experience of that fateful day, it may be that we owe to God the same faithfulness that He gives to us. We should strive for steadiness, and for a commitment to God that does not ebb and flow with the years or the crises of our lives."
