(REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE) Written by Greg Rolie, Bob Marlette and Kevin Chalfont Losing identity in romance is always a mistake Sung by The Storm Copyright (c) 1991 by Interscope Records The Storm's "I've Got a Lot to Learn About Love" reminds me of "Live for Loving You," that I recently discussed in this colunm. Yet. in some ways, that song is different. The similarity lies in the song's story. The guy in the song focuses his whole life on the girl. He says, "I would live or die for you," thinking the girl was "that one I could depend on." But now that she's gone, he realizes "I've got a lot to learn about love." His willingness to look at what has hap- pened is whore the two songs differ. Losing one's identity in a romance is always a mistake. The individuals eventually will face their dissatisfaction over losing their own needs. interests and dreams. Love doesn't deny conflicts when they occur in the important aspects of our lives. Rather. love asks us to be both honest and fair. Too often individuals get so high over the in- tense feelings caused by romance that they choose to ignore everything else about the rela- tionship. To learn more about love, listen to your feel- ings. Be honest. What about your partner's ac- tions, attitudes or values? Do they bother you? If you say never, then you do not know your part- nor very well. Furthermore, if you free to express your concerns, then the sity of the romance is leading you into problems Another way to learn about love is to amine what happens when you and the you date have disagreements. Are these filets faced directly? Do each of you own view of the situation? Do each of to manipulate or three the other to accept point of view? When either person treats fairly in trying to "win" the argument, tionship always loses. Each time persons come out of a disagreement den resentments, love dies a little, There are no perfect ways to love. Like the person in the song, learn through our lessons are painful. Yet most of us are the best we can. We need to be both and persistent. God gave us our which to learn. Allow each relationshi friendship and all interactions wi become an opportunity to practice love. (Your comments are always welcome* Please address: Charlie Martin, R.R. 182, Rockport, IN 47635).

The setting is Atlanta, where a black woman is found brutally murdered and the police have arrested a white man for the crime. The judge (Raymond Burr} assigned to the case calls in up-and-coming attorney Will Lee (Corbin Bernsen) and in- sists that he undertake the ac- cused man's defense. The judge wants to keep the trial from becoming racially charged and believes that savvy lawyer Lee, whose American National Bank Bicknell - Sandborn Vincennes Drive-in Facilities - Member F.D.I.C. A Full Service Bank After assuring himself of his client's innocence, Lee proceeds with the defense until suddenly everything is thrown into a cocked hat by an outburst of racial violence perpetrated by an under- ground white supremacist group. Derek Marlowe's script fit- fully keeps three plot lines going. The major one in- volves the personal life of Lee, his family and friends, most of whom were first in- troduced in the 1983 minis- eries "Chiefs." The second thread follows the, racially sensitive trial which could destroy Lee's chances of becoming Geor- gia's next U.S. senator. The third plot element is the shadowy hate-group run on military lines by a retired Army officer (Rod Taylor}. The group's chief bully boy is a psychopathic killer (John VelJohnson). _ n tri, Director Jerry LondO . 01 to keep all three plot lir:# equal interest, but GlVce '. rforln '. larger-than-life pe o1 as a maniacal assassi,di notes the otherwise P'- proceedings. ,  1# !
