The World Needs Builders, President Uchtdorf Tells Los Angeles World Affairs Council - LDS Newsroom
The world needs builders, not destroyers, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
, second counselor in the First Presidency
of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, told 800 community, business and religious leaders attending the Los Angeles World Affairs Council on 26 May 2011.
It takes courage
and humility to put away old hatred, divisions and traditions that constrict and confine people into a blind succession of destructive behavior toward others, President Uchtdorf said. It is within our reach to breach barriers of hate and build bridges of brotherhood and understanding between opposing cultures, beliefs, religion and world views.
