"My young friends, be strong.
The philosophies of men surround us.
The face of sin today often wears the mask of tolerance.
Do not be deceived; behind that facade is heartache, unhappiness, and pain.
You know what is right and what is wrong, and no disguise, however appealing, can change that.
The character of transgression remains the same.
If your so-called friends urge you to do anything you know to be wrong, you be the one to make a stand for right, even if you stand alone.
Have the moral courage to be a light for others to follow.
There is no friendship more valuable then your own clear conscience, your own moral cleanliness-and what a glorious feeling it is to know that you stand in your appointed place clean and with the confidence that you are worthy to do so."
Wise words by President Monson. Eli decided to use this quote for his faith in God goal program.
