Dear Editor,

I truly thank God for the many kind and loving folks in this community! It is because we are HIS that we must continually examine ourselves and seek HIS wisdom.I have become painfully aware of the plight of several youths in our area who have problems difficult to handle. They just don't fit into the proverbial "box." I very prayerfully and respectfully submit for consideration what has come from my broken heart on their behalf:What Difference Does It Make?

What difference does it make if I go the wrong way?Does anyone even care what I have to say?

You see me everyday - still, I'm invisible to someThe others scorn and laugh. By most of you I'm shunned.

Buddah, Jesus, Mohammed - what is truly real?Do any of them even know or care how I feel?

"What difference does it make," you say"Just get that 'scum' out of the way.

Just get him gone. Do it now!We don't care where, we don't care how!

It's not our problem; besides, him we don't want to touch.We're good folks, we just don't want to be bothered much.

We want our lily white sweet lanesTo remain untouched and stay the same.

For our small worl is lovely! See how pure and so pristeen?We want to stay far away, and safe from the unclean."

So what difference does it make if I keep going the wrong way?Does anyone even care how I feel and what I have to say?

You make it sound so easy, blind that I want to do what's rightMaking sure I can't get past my mistakes, haunting me day and night!

I get so discouraged, I feel so overwhelmed!I thought you knew 'the way." As they say, 'time will tell'.

How does anyone start over? Is it ever meant to be?I was told you believed in Jesus' death on that tree!

Seems forgiveness is a thing that's talked about alotBut WHERE IS IT, anyway? Mess up - your whole life's shot!

What difference does it make if I go the right way?Does anyone even care what I have to say?

Will no one let me start over? Will no one give me a chance? What difference could it make? What difference do I make?What difference do YOU make?

"God loved the people of this world so very muchHe gave His only Son, so that everyone who has faithIn Him will have eternal life. God did not send His SonInto the world to condemn its people.He sent Him to SAVE them."

What difference does it make - INDEED!What differences does it make in DEED!

Melinda Cook
