Mormon topics were trending, and trend they did; on Google, Yahoo, the news, media, press, online, at work, at home and at play.
Other than experiencing along with the rest of the world our LDS faith being thrust into the lime-light, we don't really think it changed much of the day-to-day aspects of life for most Mormons. The Mormon Moment wasn't a job was it, cause if so, we are owed some back wages!
Now that the presidential election is over and Governor Romney has said his gracious farewell, the press is letting everyone know that the Mormon Moment is over. So what will the Mormons do?
If you're Governor Romney or the Mormons who voted for him, some of us will be sad at first, but not for long. Mormons are a people filled with faith and hope. Y'all we have survived an extermination order, a pioneer trek to the desert and like Brotha Romney said in his gratitude-filled concession speech, we know how to pray. P. Diddy said: "Can't nobody take my pride, can't nobody hold me down, oh no, I got to keep on movin'!" And that's how the Mormons roll!
We will make Jell-o and some of us will put carrots in it. Don't judge us, we were doing it before the Mormon Moment, during the Mormon Moment and we sho ain't stoppin' now.
We will still come knocking at you're door. And now that young men can serve missions at 18 instead of 19 and young women at 19 instead of 21, there will be plenty more of us to do the Lord's work. So be nice and don't slam the door in our face, and maybe offer to feed us.
We will drive minivans. As long as they are making them, you will see Mormons driving them. Ain't no shame in our game.
We are still going to argue over whether it's ok to drink caffeine. We thought that the LDS church's statement would have stopped the debates, but umm...no.
We will get married...to only ONE woman. (We hope the Mormon Moment has at least cleared this up.)
We will do our best to maintain our values and standards.
We will worship.
We will serve.
What we are saying is that Mormons are just gonna do what we do, we're gonna do us. Mormons may have had a moment, but we weren't Mormons for a moment. So don't worry world, our moment in the spotlight has not gone to our heads. We're still who we always were, your brothas and sistas, neighbors and friends, who just like you; are trying to be like Jesus.
