8 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana --- On The Record--- - How good are teens at friendship? I'LL STAND BY YOU i Oh why you look so sad? / The tears are in your eyes / Come on and come to me / Don't be ashamed to cry / Let me see you through / Because I've seen the dark side too / When the night falls on you / You don't know what to do / Nothing that you confess / Can make me love you less / I'll stand by you By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST (Refrain): I'll stand by you Won't let anybody hurt you I'll stand by you So if you are mad, get mad / Don't hold it all inside / Come on and talk to me now / What have you got to hide? / I get angry too / But I'm alive without you / When you're standing / At the crossroads / Don't know which path to choose / Let me come along / Because even if you're wrong / I'll stand by you (Repeat refrain) I'll stand by you / Through your darkest hour / And I'll never desert you / And I'll stand by you / And when the night falls on you baby / You're feeling all alone / Wondering on your own / I'll stand by you. i (Written by C. Hynde/B. Steinberg Yr. Kelly Sung by Pretenders Copyright (c) 1994, Sire Records Co./Warner Music UK Ltd. What does it take to be a good friend? Over the years, I have written several times that a genuine friendship is a life treasure. The  Pretenders' latest hit, "I'll Stand By You," de- scribes this type of friendship and prompted me to ask what a good friend is. The song speaks of a person's promise to "stand by you through your darkest hour." Fur- ther, "nothing that you confess can make me love you less." Clearly, this person intends to be a faithful friend through life's ups and downs. As I work with teens, I notice that young people often freely and fully give the gift of friendship. Teens know how to believe in each other and to be there for the sake of a peer. I want to stress how teens can extend their gifts of friendship and make a real difference to people beyond their immediate school or social group. The Gospels tell how Jesus loved his friends. He deeply enjoyed relaxing with them and experienced the blessings of affectionate companionship. However, Jesus also offered his friendless. He did not stop with his t caring friendship to those facing life alone. do this too. For example, you could work with to arrange a system to reach out to teens in soe the world's hurting places. Fortunately, English is one known languages. Start a writing teen in Bosnia, Iraq, Haiti or in some where teens face suffering and fear. Or look closer to home. The harshness teens' lives has led them to prison. From the receive from some of these teens, I hear liness and battle against despair. You could your local law enforcement department to how to write a teen in prison. I have seen the positive effects tee people in prison and in nursing homes. To chat an elderly person for an hour each week can caring into a lonely person's life. These are just some suggestions to thinking. Be creative. Think of ways that give other people the gift of your friendship. (Your comments are always welcome. dress: Charlie Mdrtin, RR 3, Box 182, Rockport, J 47635.)
