8 l The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana .--- On The Record-- Bring healing to world in turmoil BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY Find yourself in the gutter/In a lonely part of town/When death waits in the darkness/With a weapon to cut some stranger down/Sleeping with an empty bottle/He's a sad and empty- hearted man/All he needs is a job/And a little respect/So he can get out while he can/We al- ways need to hear/Both sides of the story I / ing now/People looking for truth/We must not fail them By CHARLIE MARTIN now/Be sure before we close l our eyes/Don't walk away from herefril you see both sides A neighborhood peace is shattered/In the middle of the night/Young faces hide in the shadows/While they watch their/Mother and father fight/He says she's been unfaithful/She says her love for him has gone/And the brother shrugs to his sister and saysJ"Looks like it's just us from now on"/We always need to hear/Both sides of the story And the lights are all on/The world is watch- Lug now/People looking for truth/We must not fail them now/Be sure before we close our eyes/Don't walk away from here/Til you hear both sides Here we are all gathered/In what seems to be the center of the storm/Neighbors once friendly/Now stand each side/Of the line that has been drawn/They've been fighting here for years/But now there's killing on the streets/While small coffins add up sadly,/Now united in defeat/We always need to hear/Both sides of the story And the lights are still on/The world is watch- White man turns the corner/Finds himself with a different world/Ghetto kid grabs his shoulder/Throws him up against the wail/He says, "Would you respect me/If I didn't have this gunJ'Cause without it I don't get it/And that's why I carry one?" (REPEAT REFRAIN) Written and sung by Phil Collins Copyright (c) 1993 by Atlantic Recording Co. Take a look at today's newspaper. What do you find? Most likely you will discover more and more evidence of how violent our world has become. Phil Collins addresses this problem in "Both Sides of the Story." Collins invites us to look be- yond incidents of violence and to glimpse why this affliction so deeply affects our times. To help us gain insight, Collins presents im- ages from people's lives. He describes how vio- lence evolves out of a life of addiction or how poverty erodes self-respect in youths caught in its grip. The song encourages us to ask what we can do to promote healing of the root causes of violence. Often I have written on the power that a single individual possesses, that is, someone like you! / f, Each person can make a genuine difference ing our world. Your attitudes and actions matter. In choices help to make Jesus' life, death and cle of his resurrection a hope-filled world struggling with violence. How d you do this? Consider these 1. Show respect and kindness to each you meet at school. Look beyond the or social background, and see a longs for the same opportunity and want for yourself. Give the gifts of f couragement and respect to everyone. 2. Build more peace in your home. affect your relationship with your parents or lings, ask that the problems be discussed. Look for ways to treat each person at home understanding and fairness your efforts fail to promote resolution of a flict, suggest that your family enter counseling, : Tell the others that each of you deserve a vironment where respect and the to problems is experienced. Show your to this family goal by offering to pay p seling fee. 3. Fill your minds with ize your home, your neighborhood, indeed, your whole small comer of the world as a safety and peace, to guide Invite the spirit of the risen Jesus that you can help to create a whole newspapers to report on, a story t lence with peace.
