8 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record- Who is hiding behind the laughter WITHOUT YOU No I can't forget this evening/Nor your face as you were leaving/But I guess that is Just the way the story goes/You always smiled But in your eyes your sorrow shows/Yes, it shows [ By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST No I can't forget tomorrow/When I think of all my sorrow/When I had you there/But then I let you go/And now it's only fair/That I should let you know/What you should know (REFRAIN) I can't live if living is without you/I can't give, I can't give anymore/Can't live, if living is without you/I can't give, I can't give anymore (REPEAT FIRST VERSE) (REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE) Written by W.P. Ham/T. Evans Sung by Mariah Carey Copyright (c) 1994, Sony Music Entertainment Inc. How do you hide your sorrows and disappoint- ments? This question came to mind after listening to Mariah Carey's remake of the Air one with our smiles, we leave ourselves in emoti0l i Supply classic "Without You." The release is still another chart hit off Carey's most successful "Music Box" disc. In the song's story, one per- son decided to take some time out from a relationship. This woman told her guy that she needed to let him go. How- ever, now she feels this was a mistake. She has discovered that "I can't live is living is without you." She remembers that her friend always smiled, perhaps even through the pain of their separation, but "in your eyesyour sorrow shows, yes: it shows." To her, he couldn't hide the disappointment and hurt. How often are we like this person? What are the ways we try to disguise our hurts? Some teens hide behind their laughter and silliness as they try to be the clown in any crowd. Other teens attempt to drink away their pain in alcohol abuse. Still others hide behind achievements, looking so good to the outer world, but hurting so much on the inside. I suppose that we all have the ability to be masters of deception. Sometimes, it seems easier to pretend that everything is OK than to risk ridicule or rejection of our feelings. We don't need to tell lots of people about our hurts. However, when we try to fake out every- isolation. Each of us needs a few people we can deeply trust, individuals who will listen ::i what we feel. One way to develop such emotional allies the sort of person who is willing to make listen attentively to others as they share their J ings. Furthermore, don't try to Solve problems. Doing so leads to advice- ers are likely to ignore or even resent. t "ng to Instead, listen in a caring way, ryl a safe atmosphere for another to speak : his or her emotions. our best friendships are with those to both give and receive such support. Often friendships grow over time because gen with another doesn't happen quickly. If you don't have peer friends like th!s, ber that in every community there want to listen to and help others. The parish priest or youth minister, your professionally trained individuals su . . Don't pretend that everything is fine when J isn't. Come out of emotional isolation and share of your heart.

Henry Kuykendall CBS and Fox cooperate to p family discussion about viols Kids Killing Kids Written and directed by Encouragin PROGRAM REVIEW By HENRY HERX The growing problem of guns in the hands of youngsters is the subject of "Kids Killing Kids," airing Tuesday, April 26, 8-9 p.m. EDT simultane- ously on CBS and Fox. Hosted by Malcolrp-Jamal Warner, the program offers four dramatizations demon- strating the tragic outcome of situations in which a teen-ager is armed with a handgun. The same situation is then repeated, this time showing its resolution without the use of a gun. The stories involve a youth gang, a depressed teen-ager who becomes suicidal, a stu- dent who brings a gun to school to impress his peers, and a youngster who packs a rod to scare off a bully. While the dramatizations may not measure up to the slick level of prime-time dra- matic entertainment, they are quite adequate for a program intended primarily as an edu- cational vehicle for young viewers. David J. Eagle for Arnold Shapiro Productions, the result accomplishes its task of demonstrating that guns do not solve problems -- they only create victims. Then, in replaying each dramatization, the positive outcome is tied to strategies for avoiding confrontations and how using one's head resolves problems far better than a gun. Along the way, there's an abundance of information and statistics about the growing menace of youth violence in- volving firearms. Unavailable for preview was a concluding documentary seg- ment showing "what young- sters are doing to reduce vio- lence, solve conflicts peacefully and maintain gun-free schools." The program's subject mat- ter is obviously one that con- cerns all parents, regardless of what they perceive to be the level of youth violence in their community. Parents can use it as a kind of reality check on how their youngsters view guns and vio- lence. COMPLETE INSURANCE-SERVICE Auto! Home! Fire & Life! Your Personal Service Agent James L. Will Ins.
