This video was done by one of the young men in my ward (who happens to be Jared's cousin), about a young couple in my ward- Jared and Amy Nelson. (side note- Jared's Grandfather is our Stake Patriarch, his dad is our Stake President, and his uncle is my Bishop) I went to High School with Jared and remember hanging out with him and his friends, even though I was 2 years younger. I also remember hearing about the car crash that killed 9 of the 11 people in the car. I was on a Church History Trip through BYU-Idaho. One of the other girls on the trip knew one of the young men who died, and told us about the accident. I remember thinking how sad the situation was, but never thought I would know someone involved. The next day my mom called to tell me Jared had been one of the 2 survivors.

I am not a perfect person. I struggle. I cry every time I see Jared. I see Amy and can not think of a stronger woman. I have learned the true eternal perspective through her. I am Amy's Visiting Teacher, but in my weakness, have not been able to visit her. I needed this video, and I need to visit Amy. Thank you Brighton.
