Reddick Allred’s heroics were not in what he did, but what he didn’t do. By not following the crowd, or even sound logic, he is credited with saving hundreds of Pioneer lives.

Why do we love Pioneer stories? Their faith and courage inspire us and give us hope!
“It is good to look to the past to gain appreciation for the present and perspective for the future. It is good to look upon the virtues of those who have gone before; to gain strength for whatever lies ahead. It is good to reflect upon the work of those who labored so hard and gained so little in this world, but out of whose dreams and early pains, so well nurtured, has come a great harvest of which we are the beneficiaries. Their tremendous example can become a compelling motivation for all of us.”
~Gordon B. Hinckley
