D&C 133:23-24 -- On Unity

"He shall command the great deep, and it shall be driven back into the north countries, and the islands shall become one land;
And the land of Jerusalem and the land of Zion shall be turned back into their own place, and the earth shall be like as it was in the days before it was divided."
Doctrine and Covenants 133:23-24

I like the idea of the land being restored to the way it was "before it was divided," presumably prior to the Tower of Babel, right?  One land, one language?  It got us into a lot of trouble back then, but think of the difference it would make in our current world to go back to our Pangea roots. :)  No more claiming that one land or country is better than another, or that some race or nationality is superior.  We would finally see, in a very real, physical way, that we are all one... part of each other.  I like the idea of unity... spiritual unity, for sure, but the earth achieving physical unity as well is also an awesome idea.
Today, let's work on imagining this, and try to live as though the land was united, along with our hearts and our languages. Maybe if we start now, we'll be ready when it happens. :)
