What if this person al- ways saw the best in you and helped you believe in yourself too? I ask these questions to help us consider what Easter means. To do this, we need to imagine what Jesus' friends were feeling on the Friday and Satur- day before Easter morning. Their grief and loss were overwhelming. I chose Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me" to reflect on these questions. Off the soundtrack of the new film "Up Close and Personal," Ms. Dion gives a powerful vocal rendition of how someone's love can change Us.

For example, is there a brother or sister of who is struggling with a problem? As a teen, not know what to do to help your brother past this situation. Yet, you can do this: You can that you see much more than just the culty. You can say clearly that yot son's goodness. You can say that you both to understand the failures and to successes. This is just one example of the the song mentions and that Easte r Easter proclaims that Jesus is alive! fear, no doubt, no problem can stop ference it makes for each person's life! ,  Now it is your turn to live this miracle. will others say because you dare to love (Your comments are always welcome. dress: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, 47635.)
