My grandpa taught me a lot of things that will help me for the rest of eternity. He's one of the kindest people I've ever known, and he really showed me that people are important, and that they matter. He always made me feel like I was important. He taught me the importance of self-reliance in a couple of different ways. He was always a very hard worker, and I learned by watching him that there is a lot of joy to be found in working hard. I also remember that he always paid for everything with cash whenever he bought something. It was very important to him to live within his means, and has also become very important to me. My grandpa was a sealer in the Logan, Utah temple for several years. He loved the temple. It was always very important and special to him. His example to me has led me to treasure the temple as well, and has made a lasting, positive impact on our whole family.

Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.

It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified.
