Online Upon Online

This is likely going to be a brutal fall. There are stories throughout the United States of COVID outbreaks striking schools and universities that have recently reopened. Despite that, most of the country is set in the coming weeks to once again open school doors. If I were a betting man, I'd wager that we'll be stuck doing online schooling just like we did in April and May by Halloween. I don't know about you, but I find that deeply depressing.

So with all my doom and gloom, let's be inspired by the words of a prophet. Here's Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin comparing our struggles with the despair that surely faced Christ's disciples immediately following His crucifixion:
Each of us will have our own Fridays—those days when the universe itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces. We all will experience those broken times when it seems we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays.
But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death—Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will come.
No matter our desperation, no matter our grief, Sunday will come. In this life or the next, Sunday will come.
 This isn't over, but someday it will be. Hang in there.
