Dear 100 Hour Board,

Are they going to have a sesquecentennial celebration of the Mountain Meadows Massacre?

A: Dear Hopeful,
Who do you mean when you say "they"? If you mean the descendants of the people involved, than I think it's very likely they will commemorate the event in a reverent way. I'm sure it'll get an article in Church News. But will the Church hold some sort of memorial service? I think I may safely say no. You won't see the Church throwing a party like they did for the sesquicentennial anniversary of the saints entering the valley. We just learn a lesson from the event and move on.

A: Dear Hopefull,

I want to be one of the indians.
