Students honor Pres. Hinckley with white shirts, ties, and dresses

A grassroots effort among Utah students, who spread the word by texting each other on cell phones, led to Sunday dress at school Monday. The Deseret Morning News has the story.

What a touching story! You'll recall that I wore my own Sunday best as I watched Ronald Reagan's funeral on television, as a gesture of respect for him. But what these kids did is really remarkable, especially considering the grassroots nature of it. Moreover, there's the additional fact that wearing one's Sunday best isn't "cool," and adolescence is a time of life when being "cool" counts for a lot.
