Most of the shadows in this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Our Gospel Doctrine teacher told a story in class yesterday which I think is a "Mormon Myth". It's the story of Brigham Young making sure space was left for elevator shafts when the Salt Lake Temple was under construction.
Can you enlighten me on this?

A: Dear Sharon,

Leibniz gave a wonderful response to this very question in Board Question #10093.
