1991 Graduation:

Newt Gingrich, Republican Whip in the House of Representatives, spoke to 1,881 graduating seniors on M a y 10,1991. Gingrich encouraged the class to change America through drive and commitment. "Attack illiteracy. More will read and write," Gingrich said. "America will be cost effective, and we'll have better health care programs. We'll also be able to get rid of welfare for those w h o do not need it and be able to give welfare to those w h o do...If you can do that, then we'll have a stunningly prosperous America." Gingrich challenged the graduates to be true citizens and told them to remember the unique opportunities in their future. "Live life to the fullest. Fight for liberty, and take the risk of being great," he said. "Create jobs, and work for a better market and a better life by working to- together."

"The Little Foxes" The vicious promotional poster for "The Little Foxes" raised a few eyebrows and shocked s o m e m o r e sensitive passers-by, yet it also accurately reflected the tone of the play. The poster portrayed two snarling foxes attacking each other's throats, and the play w a s full of people doing just that. Selfishness, greed and pride were attitudes displayed by most of the main characters. Jennifer Roberts performed spectacularly as the snobbish, greedy Regina Giddens. Excellent performances were also given by the rest of the cast, including Jeffrey Cole, Jeffrey Thomas, Nathan Alexandar, Christopher Rosevelt, Jeff Riffle, Jennifer Miller, Beverly Garrett, Natasha Marstiller, and Dejohn Porsch. O n opening night, there were a few nervous stumbles and a couple of wrinkled tuxes, but, o n the whole, the play was very professionally done. Directed by David Allison, the chairman of Liberty's department of drama, the play w a s set at the turn of the century with excellent stage design and costumes. It w a s an exciting plot, built around a money-making scheme in which Regina and her brothers, Oscar (Jeffrey Cole) and Benjamin (Jeffrey Thomas), are involved. Regina tried to get her husband, Horace (Christopher Rosevelt), to participate because she wanted to use the profits to go to Chicago and live in high society. Horace refused, however, and the plot twists and turns its w a y to an intriguing conclusion. Not only w a s this play good entertainment, but it also taught several important lessons. Even a m o n g Christians, the effects of greed and materialism canbe widespread. This play showed that happiness does not c o m e from m o n e y and high position, and that doingrightis more important than being wealthy.

"The Pirates of Penzance" "The Pirates of Penzance," Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera, was an action-packed show for those w h o are entranced by pirates. Rachel Heer played Mable, the lead female character, and Johnny Prettyman played Frederick, the lead male character. In the play, Frederick's parents give his governess Ruth (played by Elizabeth Burns) orders to train Frederick to be a pilot. Ruth misunderstands their orders and trains him to be a pirate instead. Ruth wants to marry Frederick. H e agrees to marry her until he meets Mable, the daughter of Major General Stanley (played by Joe Gray). Frederick then denounces Ruth and plans to marry Mable. After Ruth discovers this, she and the pirate king (played by Luke Woodard) persuade Frederick to come back to her. Frederick, being true to his duties,

goes back, no matter what the cost. The pirates attempt to take the major general's wards, but the police rescue them just in time. Ruth then convinces the police that the pirates are gentlemen gone bad, and they are pardoned. The ending leads the audience to believe that Frederick will marry his true love, Mable. Heer's role is a dream come true for her. "Ever since I saw the show when I was nine years old, I wanted to play Mable," she said. "Once I was in the chorus in a professional production of 'The Pirates of Penzance.' N o w m y dream has come true after seeing the show numerous times." The play was directed by Dr. Wayne Kompelien. Other cast members included: Christian Vandenheuvel, Sergeant of Police; Dorie Donaldson, Edith; Carrie Moore, Katie; and Jennifer Roberts, Isabel.

Opera Workshop Dr. Wayne Kompelien of Liberty's music department is trying to dispel the myth that opera is boring by "exposing all to American opera." H e created the Opera Workshop, which began two years ago, to successfully complete this endeavor. The workshop was held December 19, 21 and 22. The title of the workshop was, "Is it Broadway, or is it Opera?" The production numbers were selections from "Sweeney Todd," "Les Miserables," "Phantom of the Opera," "West Side Story," "Showboat," "The Ballad of Baby Doe," "Susannah" and "Porgy and Bess." The workshop has a different goal for music students. It gives them a chance to perform on stage, display a character and maintain singing. It may also be considered a singing-acting class. "The workshop molds singer and actor," Kompelien said. There are 12 to 13 people in the class, which is only offered during the fall semester. Most of the students are music majors and singers w h o are already familiar with acting. " W e provide another opportunity to perform," Kompelien said. Each student was involved in either a solo or duet. The cast performed in "Sweeney Todd." Mrs. Vanessa Norman, a new full-time faculty member, accompanied them on the piano. The performers were Cris O'Bryon, John Stroupe, Elizabeth Burns, Joel Gay, Steven Custer, Rachel Heer, Daniel Prunaru, Daniel Vinersar, D a w n Tuttle, Jennifer Kelly, Elizabeth Maben, Jennifer Roberts, A m y Chrispher, and Dr. Kompelien, director and performer. The workshop was a success each night with an open and receptive audience. Next fall another performance will be given by the workshop.

Thanksgiving Day of Prayer The Day of Prayer was instituted at Liberty in 1985, when Vernon Brewer was diagnosed with cancer. During that time, the campus gathered in prayer for his healing. Since then, it has become a wellknown tradition for the L U students, staff, faculty and administration to gather and pray. "It is important that w e band together as students and set that time aside to seek the Lord," Dwayne Carson, assistant campus pastor, said. It is also a time for students to worship the Lord and make their petitions known. "Prayer is a basic part of Christian life," Carson said. "Too many times, w e take it for granted that w e can come before the Maker of the universe." O n November 24 and 25, the student body assembled throughout the day and night at the prayer chapel to pray for such things as God's direction in their lives, their families, their churches, Dr. Falwell and his ministries, U.S. leaders, revival in America and world evangelization.

Spiritual Emphasis Week Spiritual Emphasis Week is held once every semester. Its purpose is not evangelism, although salvation decisions are made. Its main goal is to get the students' focus on the Lord. It is a time for students to examine their o w n lives and to open themselves to receive God's blessing. " W e want the semester started off with what's important, and that's what Liberty was founded on," Rob Jackson, campus pastor, said. " W e try to bring in speakers w h o are vibrant and real, not only with the kids, but more importantly with the Lord." O n Sept. 1-4 Jay Strack along with the singing group Truth ministered to the hearts of students. Rick Stanley spoke, and Al Holley brought the music for the second week which was held Jan. 19-22. During these two weeks many came to know Christ, while others rededicated their lives and made personal commitments to serve God full-time in some capacity.

The 18th Airborne Corps, along with the 24th Infantry Division, engaged the enemy for the first time on Feb. 24, day two of the ground war. The unit then moved on to Al-Basara, where they came into combat with the Republican Guard, an elite Iraqi force. After the cease-fire came into effect, McBride and his unit were given orders to return to Log Base Charlie, their previous location, six kilometers from the Iraqi border.

In addition to the 19 killed, 148 were injured, and 5,000 were evacuated, according to Sheriff Robert Jarrett.

Harassment Charges Caught Attention By Jennifer S. Blandford Throughout October, America's eyes were glued to the unbelievable scandal unfolding. It was a nightmare which captured everyone's attention and kept them fixed on the television for several days. The battle between Clarence Thomas, a U.S. Supreme Court nominee, and Anita Hill, a professor at the University of Oklahoma, lasted several days. A fascinated America watched as they fought and testified their way to fame over the ugly charges of sexual harassment. Hill, a former co-worker of Thomas', claimed that a decade earlier Thomas had offended her with lewd jokes, crude comments, and conversations that were inappropriate for the office. Thomas repeatedly denied these charges, reminding Hill of what he said were the facts. H e reminded her that she voluntarily followed him from their first job together at the Department of Education to their next job with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). H e talked about the friendly relationship which Hill had kept up following their work at the EEOC. During this time, she made more than 10 recorded personal phone calls to Thomas' office. She also, after accepting her current position with the University of Oklahoma, invited him to spend time with her on several occasions while he was in Tulsa on business. Hill did all this, even though she said she found Thomas to be offensive. In fact, she thought his conduct to be so offensive that, even 10 years after the fact, she was willing to put her o w n credibility on the line to make it It is understood by most people, that a supervisor public, just as Thomas was about to reach the high point demanding sexual favors from a w o m a n in exhange for of his career.

An Attack that Changed the World December 7.1941: Pearl Harbor

~M

B y Jennifer S. Blandford Fifty years ago, December 7, a quiet Sunday morning, America suffered a surprise attack that cannot be forgotten by her people. Shortly before 8 a.m. a squadron of 350 Japanese fighters, dive bombers, and torpedo planes swept in from the north and destroyed six American battleships, 163 aircraft and 2,403 soldiers while wounding 1,178. Most of this d a m a g e occurred within the first 20 minutes of a two-hour attack. The event w a s the attack on Pearl Harbor, and it brought America into World W a r II. This day has been called by m a n y , "the day of infamy" or "bloody Sunday." Following Pearl Harbor, the war carried on for several years with heavy fighting throughout m u c h of Southeast Asia and thousands of casualities on both sides. America finally ended it after dropping two surprise atomic bombs on the Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Unfortunately, America's surprise attacks wiped out thousands of innocent Japanese civilians. From the m o m e n t after the first explosion and through the past 50 years, m a n y patriots have debated over h o w a nation as great as America could have allowed herself to be caught so off-guard by a lesser foe, such as Japan. The fact is that America w a s too preoccupied with Europe's bold fascists to pay any attention to Tokyo's imperialists. Over the years, the surprise attack has been turned into a kind-of heroic defeat for America. Stories have been told of scalded m e n s w i m m i n g through burning oil to rescue their bleeding comrades as they drowned in the harbor and of gallant soldiers firing round after round of ammunition into the sky with the hopes of downing a soaring Japanese plane. The results of the attack on Pearl Harbor and World But the fact remains that for America, the attack on W a r II have been positive for America.

Mosloy Determines to Win By Ruth Gutierrez and Becky Griggs

With the everyday pressures of going to class, doing h o m e w o r k and getting good grades, w h o has time for anything else? Senior broadcast journalism major Gerald Mosley considers running track as a w a y of breaking the monotony of being a typical student. Gerald is a sprinter on the L U track team and competes regularly in the 100, 200, and 400 meter sprints. Gerald did not come from a sports-oriented family. H e has a family of two brothers and two sisters. O n e of his brothers w a s a fast runner like Gerald, but he did not pursue track as Gerald did. Gerald discovered his God-given ability during his sophomore year at Rustburg High School after his coach told him he had running talent. Gerald began to realize Photo by Tim Albertson his dream during his junior and senior year, w h e n he was n a m e d the "Athlete of the Year" for the Seminole his knee and had to have a knee scope. His hopes bega District. "Sports opened u p the doors for m e to succeed to diminish as the universities began to withdraw their in life," he said. offers. This is w h e n L U Track Coach Brant Tolsma decided to While Gerald was in high school, several Division I universities offered him a scholarship to run track. His take a chance and offer him a scholarship. "I was happy running career looked positive until he tore cartilage in to become part of the program," Gerald said. Gerald's ability to run well includes several factors. "The running starts w h e n you go to bed, because you need enough sleep (eight hours worth) to do well in track," he said. "Without it, no sprinter can do well." Eating habits also play a big part in running. Gerald's diet consists of salads, potatoes, chicken and eggs. "Runners must maintain a certain weight," he said. Memories of running track will always stay with Gerald. In his sophomore year he beat a third-year track runner in a regional track meet. It was the 100-meter sprint, and Gerald beat him by one second. "I felt like running the race again," he said. " I had the feeling that I couldn't stop." In 1990 he had the opportunity to run in front of 44,000 people at the Penn Relays which was reported by ESPN. "The emotion of the crowd was like the Olympics. W h e n you receive the baton into your hand, everything is focused on you," he said. "The pressure is unbelievable." Gerald is determined to be a winner, and he remembers the advice of his parents every day. "Never give up, even if you're in the dumps. Give 110 percent regardless of h o w bad you do. We're always on your side." Although Gerald would be content being a sportscaster, he sees his career in track. "I don't k n o w what I would do if I w o k e u p in the morning and there was no such thing as sports," he said. Gerald has some advice for future runners. "Never give u p and use a die-hard attitude," he said. Gerald shows us this attitude every day in his success as a runner.

B y K i m Davis Members of the Virginia Army National Guard aren't just soldiers, they're weapons! Over 20 L U students are in Headquarters and C o m p a n y C of the 2nd Battalion, 116th Infantry 29th Infantry Division (light). These m e n are not only trained to fight anywhere trouble breaks out, they are also trained to fight at a moment's notice and can reach their destination twice as fast as conventional infantry divisions. Specialist (SPC) Troy C h a m p n e y , junior business management major, joined the guard in January, 1990. Since then, he has had a growing appreciation for his division. "At first, I thought it w a s a joke," he said. " N o w that I'm in it, I can see the importance of it, and I respect this branch of service a lot more. It isn't as easy as I thought it w a s going to be there are a lot more challenges." The first and one of the most difficult challenges one must conquer after joining the guard is basic training. Private First Class (PFC) Chris Rusk, junior criminal justice major, returned from his 13 weeks in August, 1991. "Nothing can top that (basic) as far as difficulty," Rusk said. "You go on very little sleep with constant stress, both mentally and physically. A n y challenge is surmountable after going through basic." Rusk also said that his experience in basic Photo by Kim Davis taught him valuable lessons - especially in the area of discipline.

By Becky Griggs "Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye m a y k n o w h o w ye ought to answer every man." (Colossians 4:6) This is the team verse for the Liberty University Intercollegiate Debate Team. "Our first goal is to be a witness for Christ," Jim Sorenson, junior and three-year team member, said. "The more well-known w e get, the more important w e become." The team has become quite important in the national rankings. They have placed third in the nation for the past two years in the highest level of debate. They have beaten numerous wellk n o w n schools, such as Harvard, Georgetown, and W a k e Forest. Three different groups combine to form the intercollegiate team: varsity, junior varsity and novices (beginners). The groups are divided into teams of two, according to h o w well they work with each other. Liberty's debate program has grown steadily over the past few years. Before 1988 the debate team w a s not ranked. It is n o w considered one of the top teams in the nation. "Brett O'Donnell (former coach) really built the program up," Jim said. It has also proven to be very beneficial for the school. "It helps the school academically," Jim said. "A lot of people don't view Liberty as an academic school, and that's wrong. Our ranking shows the nation that w e are highly interested in academics." Not only has the debate team helped to m a k e an academic n a m e for Liberty, it is also beneficial for the individual members. "I think debate helps those of us w h o are going to law school," Jim said. "Debate makes you critically think, and it helps you to be able to defend any position that you want to. It also has helped m e for doing research in m y classes." The team motto is, "A community of friends." According to senior and three-year team m e m ber Tim Edwards, they place great value on each other. " The friendships that I have m a d e have been a great benefit to me," he said. " W e have latched stronger friendships than other teams," Jim said. " M a n y other debate programs have a lot of rivalry between them. W e get along very well and spend a lot of time together." The varsity participates in 15-16 tournaments per year, and the junior varsity participates in 10-11 per year. The novices, w h o are usually freshmen, do not get to travel. "You either love debate or you hate it," D a m i Linton, freshman novice, said. "It takes a lot of commitment, but w e have a good time." Although the majority of the debate team members plan to be lawyers, some are pastoral and pre-med majors, also. According to Audrey

Photo By Tim Kania Rekeczky, junior and three-year member, the skills that they learn are valuable in any profession. "Debate helps you to be able to think faster on your feet," she said. "You can think logically through arguments and see the holes in what people are saying." This year, the debate team has n e w leadership. Head Coach Janet Pierpoint is a 1989 graduate of Liberty University, where she debated for four years. Brett O'Donnell, last year's coach, persuaded her to take his place after he left to pursue a doctorate at Penn State. Assistant Coach Allen Stewart is a 1991 graduate of George Mason University, where he debated for four years. H e was one of the top debators in the nation for two years. The debate team looks forward to a possible number one national ranking in the future. "Our goal is to constantly do better so our program is recognized as a serious program," Jim said. The debate team has brought national recognition to Liberty University and has been a great testimony for Christ throughout the nation.

"This w a s an exciting but tough year," Paula Pentecost, color guard instructor and captain, said. "I see a lot of potential and talent in this year's team. W e have a strong unity that w e haven't had in the past years." Participation, however, is a difficult task. The color guard started the season by arriving two weeks early for camp, where they learned basic skills. Practice began at 9 a.m. and ended at 10 p.m. It w a s also during this time that Paula and Kari Kauffman, co-captain, put choreography together for the routines. Once school started, an average of six hours were spent per week practicing. However, w h e n a routine needed work, longer hours were spent to strengthen and perfect it. "The time it takes to learn a routine depends on the level of difficulty," Paula said. "A normal routine, which is one song, m a y be learned roughly in six hours. M a n y hours after that are spent mastering the routine." Because of the time involved and the physical nature of the routines, being on the color guard can be both stressful and difficult. "The qualities of a good color guard are strong unity, precision, dedication, and confidence in what you do," Paula said. The L U Color Guard has big plans for the future.

By Melody Walker The Liberty Deaf Association's (LDA) objective is to promote the best possible communication and understanding with the faculty and student body and to further Christian growth and maturity according to God's word. L D A was founded in 1985 and is part of the Student Government Association. Sue Willmington, co-founder and present advisor of L D A , works with organization members to provide fellowship and activities on and off campus. O n Friday nights deaf students can watch captioned movies. They have also been involved in sponsoring an annual basketball tournament for the deaf. A m o n g other things, L D A supports deaf students w h o have gone on summer missionary trips to places such as Peru and Brazil, and assists the hearing impaired during College for a Weekend. LDA's goal this year was to raise money for more activities and get more deaf students, along with other students w h o are interested, involved with the association. Although only deaf students can be members of the organization, associate membership m a y be granted to other students desiring to work with the deaf. They are also working to recruit new deaf students to LU. The officers are Brian Walter, president, and Cindy Holding, secretary.

B y Jennifer Hale The King's Players have been making a difference at Liberty University for almost 20 years. Their purpose is to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ through drama. This ministry group has performed 30 different plays throughout their years of ministry. Their plays range from secular classics to contemporary Christian, including "Pilgrim's Progress," "Everyman" and "The Passion Play." David Allison, chairman of LU's drama department, referred to the King's Players as "a touring repertoire company." "Touring," because they travel to the audience instead of waiting for an audience to come to them. "Repertoire," because they present several plays on each tour, instead of concentrating on just one. M e m b e r s of the group include: Brad Bogart, Matthew Cecchini, Sung Cha, Vicki Ervin, Jennifer Hadden, Stephanie Hayes, Matthew Kerrick, Zaida Maldonado, S h a w n Porter, Chris Roosevelt, Johanna Rothfeld, Ginger Vertican and Torrence Wimbish. This year, the group toured with four different plays: "Family Allies," "The King," "Which W a y " and "Addict," a secular play with a very strong message about drug abuse. "Our goal this year is to have this play performed in every high school in Lynchburg," Allison said. The King's Players are definitely making a difference in Lynchburg and m a n y other places, not only in the audiences, but in the team members, as well. "Working with young people through the King's Players is the best thing," Brad Bogart said. "I love using drama to see young people come to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ."

Service Creates Opportunities B y Becky Griggs A person who shares what they have with others cares about the well being of the people around them. Organizations are full of these kinds of people. People w h o care and give of themselves. People that can be looked u p to. M a n y organizations could not survive without people w h o contribute their time and efforts to worthy causes. Volunteers are a vital part of any organization and are often strongly driven for the cause which they are involved in. O u r society is a highly organizational one. There are organizations for nearly every cause that can be thought of. Perhaps some of the greatest organizations are those that are formed to help those in need. L U has m a n y clubs and organizations that are aimed at helping people, but it is u p to the student to become involved. W h a t motivates people to volunteer? It takes a kind and caring person to donate time out of their schedule to an organization. Perhaps these people are driven by the golden rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Although it is true that w h e n one becomes a Christian he should be compelled to give, there are m a n y non-Christians w h o are giving as well. People w h o volunteer are driven by a number of things. It m a y be that they possess a burden for the homeless because they have witnessed it first hand in the city in which they live. People m a y volunteer

for an organization such as the American Cancer Society because they have lost someone close to cancer. Perhaps they m a y volunteer their time to a church or Christian organization because of their burden to lead lost souls to Christ. Whatever the reason, there is no doubt that volunteers play a vital role in our society. M a n y organizations could not survive without them. The purpose of the clubs and organizations at L U is twofold. The first is to promote student involvement in a particular interest area or major. The second is to train those people to m a k e a difference in that area. M a n y of these organizations are aimed at helping others. Chi-Alpha, a club for w o m e n , allows female students the opportunity to serve Christ and m a k e a difference in other's lives. They have m a n y ministries in the inner-city as well as the Liberty Godparent H o m e and several local nursing homes. The Circle K Club is nationwide, and Liberty's chapter is greatly involved with helping others. They have sponsored such projects as the Red Cross blood drives and cards for servicemen. Youth Quest, one of the larger clubs on campus, is a ministry club geared toward youth. M a n y people are saved as the result of Youth Quest sponsored activities such as Scaremare, Clearwater Beach Alive and N e w York Quest. There are m a n y more organizations that are sponsored by Liberty for ministry outreach. M a n y students work together on their o w n for a cause. Students can participate in antiabortion rallies, such as the National Life Chain in October of 1991. These students donated their time to defend the lives of thousands of unborn babies.


In addition to the organizations available at Liberty, there are m a n y other organizations within the community. The United W a y of Central Virginia is a non-profit organization which raises m o n e y for under-privileged people. People of all ages are involved in the United W a y , because it is a well-known, trusted organization. Although some people do not have the time to volunteer, they give m o n e y through payroll deductions. Giving in a tangible w a y can be equally important as giving time. There are also national organizations that focus on people with diseases or chronic illnesses. O n e of the most famous is the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This organization has raised m o n e y to further research for a cure to the disease. Their annual Labor D a y Telethon is one of the biggest fundraising drives of any national organization. The host, Jerry Lewis, has put m a n y years of his life towards the cause of muscular dystrophy. H e has been able to change the lives of m a n y individuals and their families. Because of his contributions, the children w h o have the disease have been n a m e d "Jerry's Kids." It is important for everyone to support at least one organization. There are m a n y organizations that need volunteers and one person can m a k e a difference. Life would be difficult to imagine without organizations. The people involved comprise a large percentage of our work force and are a vital part of America, as well as the world. The organizations available at L U are a great w a y for students to prepare for their futures. Students are taught h o w to deal with other people and personal growth. Every student should m a k e involvement in one organization a top priority in their education.

Good Samaritans By Becky Griggs Changing lives is what the Good Samaritan Center is all about. This program not only has changed the lives of those around the community, it has changed the lives of those w h o are involved working with it, as well. Heather Martin is an L U student involved with the bus ministry. It is not only rewarding for her, but it has played an important part in helping her to become missions-minded. "It helps m e to love others and gives m e a w a y to have a ministry." The G o o d Samaritan Center is a ministry of Thomas Road Baptist Church and has been located in d o w n t o w n Lynchburg since March 1988. It is a special place designed to reach out to the d o w n t o w n community and show them the love of Jesus Christ. Although some students participate as a Christian service, m a n y others go because they enjoy being a part of what is taking place there. Approximately 320 people attend the services each Sunday. There are separate classes for all age Photo By Tim Kania groups, although the majority of these people are elementary age children.

Irishman Likes Eccentric Americans By Keri Burns Ireland is a country of rolling hills and four-leaf clovers. It is a country full of tradition and heritage. Dublin, the capital city, is also the h o m e of senior Damien Bates. Damien w a s born in Tipperary, Ireland and was raised just outside of Dublin where he has lived most of his life. H e began running w h e n he was six years old. His years of dedication paid off w h e n he earned a scholarship that brought him to America. " M y da (father) has been a big influence in every area of m y life , especially in m y running," Damien said. " I k n o w I wouldn't be here without the support of both m y parents." While in high school, Damien earned the title of "European Cross Country Champion" and received a scholarship to A n d r e w College, a Methodist school in Georgia. After his freshman year, the track program at Andrew College w a s terminated and his coach encouraged him to apply to Liberty. Damien has been an outstanding athlete during his years at LU, making all-conference in 1990. In 1991 he remained one of the top five m e n on the crosscountry team. Damien has m a d e several adjustments since coming to America. Although the regular rainfalls in Lynchburg remind him of Ireland, his biggest adjustment was getting use to the heat. "In Ireland it's only 70 degrees in the s u m m e r with no humidity," he said. "Here the humidity is deadly." Damien also said that American food cannot compare with that of his mother country. "There are three MacDonald's restaurants in Lynchburg, but there are only three in the entire country of Ireland," he said. "There are three million people in Ireland, but I guess they just haven't caught on to fast food." According to Damien, prices are m u c h higher in Ireland. Gasoline prices alone average $4 per gallon. Photo By Vangie Damien said m a n y things in America are m u c h less expensive.

Commitment to Life By Melody Walker The Liberty Godparent Home (LGH) is a commitment to life. This special ministry began as a crisis pregnancy center on January 22, 1982 - the anniversary of Roe vs. W a d e (1973), which legalized abortion in the United States. Today the ministry centers around a professionally staffed h o m e for u n w e d mothers. The h o m e provides housing services, which includes a staff of houseparents; medical services, which includes a nurse on 24-hour call; counseling therapy, which provides spiritual guidance and emotional support; educational services, which places students in Lynchburg Christian A c a d e m y and L U School of LifeLong Learning; and an adoption agency, named Family Life Services. Julie Clinton, director of L G H , explained the ministry's operation. "The h o m e is run by staff and volunteers w h o come from the community, church and Liberty University," she said. " W e couldn't do the work without everyone's help." Girls ages 13 to 21 are admitted to the program. L G H is designed to help them throughout their full terms of pregnancy. In addition to school work, special activities include picnics, swimming, shopping, and L U sporting events and concerts. The girls all attendThomas Road Baptist Church. By the end of their stay, 40 percent of the girls decide to place their babies u p for adoption and 60 percent decide to parent. The girls do not have to be Christians to come to L G H , but according to Clinton, m a n y of them leave the program with a n e w life in Christ. 199

Romanians Eager to Minister By Jennifer Cox What comes to mind when you think of Romania? It m a y just be the idea of a country in turmoil, yet for some Liberty University students, this country is home. Romanian student D a n Vinersar has led a life somewhat different than most students at Liberty. D a n was involved in the revolution that took place in December of 1989. "After being shot in the revolution, I was in the hospital for two months and stayed h o m e for three months," he said. This absence caused D a n to lose his job. H e wanted to work with the church and received a scholarship to Liberty University. D a n notices a total difference between Americans and Romanians. "Americans have a different style of life, dress, walk, and talk than Romanians do," D a n said. "I a m sad that m y parents don't have this." D a n misses different aspects of Romania, such as Romanian carols. "I hope to go h o m e for Christmas next year," D a n said. H e is majoring in vocal performance, and would like to sing opera. "I would like to sing here or in R o m a nia," D a n said. H e would one day like to perform in the National Opera. "Singing and music are traditions in m y family." D a n considers Liberty a good place for those w h o are interested in the ministry. "I like it because it is clearly Christian," D a n said. "America has m a n y nice places,

and students should come from other countries if they feel that Liberty would be right for them." Senior Rob Ghitea lived in Romania until he was in the fifth grade. His family then m o v e d to Los Angeles, California. The English language was the hardest adjustment for Rob. "I didn't have a difficult time adjusting due to the fact that m y youth was spent in America." Rob and his family attended a Romanian church in Los Angeles, keeping their ties with their h o m e country. The Communist Party ruled the country w h e n Rob lived there. H e was teased in the schools of Romania because his parents weren't a part of the Communist Party. Rob had the opportunity to spend four months in Kenya last year working with the Turkana tribe. His team was able to help construct a school for the deaf, help build apartments, and work with orphans. "If I had the opportunity, I would definitely go again," Rob said. In about five years, Rob hopes to go back to Romania to be a pastor. H e had the opportunity to work with a Romanian pastor last summer. "I would love to start a Bible study program for the Romanians someday," Rob said. Neither D a n or Rob have lost sight of the needs of their country. Both are eager to minister for Christ to their o w n people.

McBrayer Dazzles Liberty Audience By Becky Griggs As the lights in the auditorium came up, Liberty students were thrilled to see one of their very o w n in the spotlight as a member of the popular musical group Truth. Jody McBrayer, w h o attended Liberty for three years, is fulfilling a dream he has always had. "I knew about Truth since I was 13, but I never thought I would be a member," Jody said. At the age of 17, Jody attended a Truth concert in Lakeland, Florida. After attempting to audition after the concert, Roger Breland told him he was too young. H e recommended that Jody attend Liberty University. Following the advice of Breland, Jody came to Liberty. H e was soon accepted into the Sounds of Liberty and was an automatic stand-out. H e dazzled audiences with his rich tenor voice, and was a favorite among many of the students. Singing with Truth has been an adjustment for Jody. "Singing with a live band is a big adjustment," Jody said. "You have to learn to concentrate and not over sing. It's also different because everyone in the group is an excellent performer, and there is not as much individual attention." In the short amount of time he has been with Truth, his spiritual life has grown immensely. "I never understood the power of the Holy Spirit as much as I do now," Jody said. The schedule is hard for Jody to adjust to. The only vacation time that he gets is three weeks at Christmas. With the exception of a few revivals and spiritual emphasis weeks, Truth travels to a different place every day. In spite of this hard schedule, Jody is constantly learning valuable lessons from God. "It was hard in the beginning," Jody said. "I took the place of someone Photos by Vangie they really loved. Through that time, I realized that God had m e there for a reason.

Ethiopia: A Wealth of Opportunity By Genie Poggemiller Sara Tewolde boldly claims that she is from "the most beautiful country in the world." She is from Ethiopia in East Africa. Her country's wealth is not measured in money, but in the treasures of its natural beauty, its culture and its people. Ethiopia is a mountainous country with m a n y lakes and rivers. The famous Nile River is at its heart. It is also h o m e to m a n y kinds of exotic birds, tropical trees and flowers. Sara's family lives in the capital city of Addis Ababa, a city which attracts m a n y tourists. Hospitality is important to Ethiopian families. "The people of Ethiopia are the very definition of hospitality," Sara said. "Our h o m e s are always ready and open to share with others what w e have as though they were members of our family." Although Ethiopia is considered to be a Third World nation, it is not because of a lack of resources. It is rather the result of political oppression and unrest. The chief industry in Ethiopia is agriculture, which caused the country to prosper in the past, prior to the communist domination which started 18 years ago. During the years of communist power, the country suffered a swift economic and agricultural decline. This led to the terrible famines, which brought worldwide attention and assistance. However, communist rule finally came to an end in 1990, leaving the country in a state of economic depression. The Tewolde family represents a wealth of cultural

and religious perseverance. "Though w e are a very close family, w e have crossed m a n y cultural barriers," Sara said. " W e have taken our faith with us." Sara has a brother living in Canada, another in Washington D.C., and a sister in Italy. Sara came to Liberty with the help of her family and through an international work scholarship provided by LU. She heard about Liberty through her brother, Tekle Tewolde, w h o graduated from L U in 1990. After completing her studies, Sara plans to return to her country as a worker with the Sudan Interior Mission. SIM recently informed Sara they will be ministering both physically and spiritually to famine victims in Western Ethiopia. Sara speaks three languages: English, Amharic (the official language of Ethiopia), and Tigrignal (one of 75 tribal languages). Sara's parents received the Gospel from missionaries w h o came to Ethiopia on a work permit. W h e n they became Christian believers, they became a part of the harsh religious persecution under the communists. "With a n e w and democratic government, I hope that this will change," Sara said. "Only time will tell if it will really be a democracy. If it continues to change for the better, n e w doors will be opened to the Gospel." With the doors of opportunity reopening, more fruit from missions in Ethiopia should be forthcoming, such as the family of Sara Tewolde, a treasure beyond price. 173


Mick Keeps Up the British End By Carolyn Van der Veen If you ask an Englishman to explain the rules of football, he'll probably begin telling you about a black and white ball that is kicked into a net. Soccer. Soccer, as w e k n o w it, is called football in all other countries outside of North America. But it is American football that makes Michael Mulcuck so unusual. Michael (Mick) is the only player on the Liberty football team w h o learned h o w to play American football in England. H e was born in Shropshire, England, where he began playing at 18. H e became involved in football after he saw a poster at a local shop that was looking for players. Mick doesn't fit into the usual image of what an Englishman looks like. At 6'6" and 270 lbs. he looks more like the average American football player. But it's Mick's distinct accent that gives away his English heritage. Mick planned to stay in England and play football after he w a s recruited to play in the International League of American Football. W h e n the league collapsed, Coach George Brincato offered him a football scholarship at the University College of Cape Breton in Canada. W h e n the football program in Canada was cancelled after one year, Mick had several offers to stay in North America to continue playing. Dr. Albrecht, his coach, arranged for him to visit a number of colleges. H e w a s offered a full football scholarship to Southern Methodist University in Texas, which is a Division 1-A school, but it was Liberty that attracted him. " S M U is a completely different school from Liberty, but I didn't want to get on the wrong track. So far, I'm happy with m y choice," Mick said. Football is becoming more popular in England. It wasn't through Liberty that Mick heard of Coach Rutigliano. "I used to watch Coach Rutigliano on the tele (TV) coaching the Browns w h e n I w a s back h o m e in England, so it w a s a big thing to be coached by him," Mick said. Mick has done well on the team and saw quite a bit

Photo by Carolyn Van der Veen of playing time, which is unusual for a first year player. " W h e n I first got here I didn't believe that I was such a bad football player, but they totally demolished m y technique. I had to start back at square one," Mick explained. Like m a n y other football players, Mick hopes to play professionally in the N F L one day. "I started college a little late, at 23, so I need to work hard in order to give myself a chance at m y dream," Mick said. Fitting into life at Liberty wasn't that difficult for Mick. H e has found dorm life to be different. After dealing with roommates, Bryant and Eric, he feels that he can take on anything. Like m a n y athletes, Mick is very grateful for his family and the help they have given him. " M y family is very close. Without the help of m y parents and brother Andrew, m y being in America would not be possible," Mick said.

Kenyan Accepts Differences By Melody Walker "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." M a r k 16:15. The Holy Scriptures have a special meaning w h e n people see the fruits of their labor. Audrey Langat is from Kenya. She learned about Liberty through the L U Kenya Team. Her goal is to become a criminal lawyer. She is planning to return h o m e for graduate school. Kenya is a country with hot weather year-round during the day. Its coldest temperatures usually get d o w n to only about 40-50 degrees at night. Besides the weather, Audrey has noticed m a n y differences in her country and the United States during her time here. Dating is private and more parentcontrolled in Kenya. It is also something to be taken more seriously. Engagement is viewed as more of a commitment - like marriage would be in the U.S. Hospitality is another difference. "In the U.S. people can talk freely," Audrey said. "In Kenya, people do not talk to each other unless they are introduced." According to Audrey, this is because there is a fear of people. "There are fences around everyone's property," she said. "Most of the fences are brick wall or wood, and some have bushes or flowers. To see a person, you have to knock at the gate." Churches in Kenya are also different. "Here you sit, listen and follow the program," Audrey said. "Churches in Kenya are open to change. All you have to say is T want to change this,' and they change it." Audrey enjoys the services in Kenya. "There is plenty of singing and dancing. Church lasts for about two hours," she said. " O n C o m m u n i o n Sunday church usually lasts for about three hours, sometimes four Photo by Tracy Creager hours." The differences in food preparation and eating are "You walk by and pick the meat. Then, they cut the added adjustments for Audrey. "Everything here is parts that you want." The judicial system is a noticeable difference. "Dieither frozen or in a can," she said. "In Kenya you have to cook everything from scratch. The food has a vorce is a rare occurrence in Kenya," Audrey said.

Other parts of the government are also run differand hung meat. " W e don't freeze the meat," she said. ently. "On election day, w e go to the polls and stand behind the person w e want to elect," Audrey said. "The people then place their votes in a box, and the votes are counted. This is the n e w system." These governmental differences are also seen in the ^^^* * — ^^f» ^r* 1 celebration of holidays.

Koreans Study at Liberty's Branch By Deborah L. Jankowski An outreach of Liberty University, named Liberty Christian School, w a s founded in Korea in 1985 by loe Hale. Because the school grew so rapidly, the n a m e w a s changed to the Network of International Christian Schools to incorporate the four other schools which were begun to accommodate the growth. The network n o w extends throughout Korea. "The Christian schools have grown significantly every year," Cooney Rothbauer, an L U sophomore and a 1990 graduate of NICS, said. "Approximately 350 to 360 students attend the kindergarten through 12thgrade." Rothbauer explained that one reason for the rapid growth of the school w a s the cost of education in Korea. H e added that the government schools cost approximately $800 per month, so in order to relieve the financial burden of government education, families enroll their children in the Christian school. "The families are really benefitted in two ways," Scotty Curlee, another L U sophomore and 1990 graduate of NICS, said. "The children receive a good education for half the cost of a government school, and they hear the gospel." Curlee praised the faculty and staff for the diligence and concern they display toward the students. " W h e n it comes to the faith, they don't compromise," he said. N I C S scores high in the percentage of students w h o receive Jesus Christ as their Lord after they are enrolled at the school. A diverse group of students with different religious backgrounds attends; but, according to Curlee, that does not m a k e a difference w h e n it comes to the truth being taught about the Scriptures.

"The teachers are firm but flexible," Curlee said. "They don't waver on the Scripture, but they are always willing to help. If a student has any questions concerning the Word, the teachers enjoy answering them and discussing topics about Christianity." Early education up to junior high accounts for most of the numbers in the Liberty branch school. Curlee and Rothbauer are two of five in the 1990 graduating class. They presently attend Liberty University along with six others from the school in Korea. The school participates in a sports organization called KIAC. This is a conglomerate of schools, both private and government, w h o compete in several different sports, including basketball, soccer, cross-country and wrestling. Volleyball is the main sport for the girls. Classes are taught in English, and most of the students speak the language fluently. English as a second language is offered for students w h o struggle with the language and desire to learn better. Curlee and Rothbauer both agree that accepting Christ, learning about the Bible and being surrounded by good influences have been the three biggest advantages of attending NICS. "They (the teachers) are willing to lend you a hand at any time," Rothbauer said. "You go there willing to learn, and they'll teach you." Under the direction of Hale, the school has accomplished its goals. It is not only thriving in numbers, but all the students are hearing the gospel, also, and m a n y each year are trusting Christ as Savior.

Koreans Minister In Nation's Capital By Ruth Gutierrez Grace and James Choi give of themselves in a unique way. They are friends working together to m a k e a difference in the lives of international people in the nation's capital. Grace Choi is from Seoul, Korea. She w a s born in 1965 and grew u p in a Christian home. After rededicating her life at a church retreat, she became determined to m a k e a difference in other people's lives. She received a B.S. degree in G e r m a n and literature and is presently pursuing her M.S. degree in religious education here at Liberty. It is not always easy being an international student, but for Grace, the L U students have m a d e everything worth it. "I've met a lot of good friends w h o are very sincere and faithful," she said. "In the Christian life friends are very important, because w h e n I a m discouraged they can give m e a special word." Grace is currently involved with the Korean Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C., where she travels faithfully every weekend. Although the trip is sometimes difficult to m a k e and decreases her study hours, the opportunity for ministry is irreplaceable. "God gives m e the special chance to serve the small children," she said. By serving as a children's ministries director, she has Photo by Tim Albertson been able to gain experience in teaching, training teachers, and organizing programs.

Her Heart's Desire to Serve with Music By Jenn Hankins Music is Carrie Moore's heart's desire. Carrie sings, writes songs and plays the piano. She hopes to use these talents in a future ministry. Music is a big part of Carrie's family. Her mother is a singer and pianist and has recorded an album. Her father also sings and plays the piano. Carrie's mother began to give her piano lessons w h e n she was seven. Although Carrie disliked her parents making her practice w h e n she was young, she is glad n o w that they did. A s a child, Carrie sang in church musicals, but in junior high she would not sing at all. She was insecure because her mother was very talented, and she did not want to be compared to her. In high school she overcame this insecurity by singing in choruses in musicals, and she sang the lead in a musical during her senior year. While in high school, Carrie wrote one song, but it was not until she came to Liberty that she began to write for the Lord. She has n o w written 25 to 30 songs. "Writing music is a w a y of expressing what God's been teaching m e in m y life," she said, "It is harder to write songs w h e n I sit d o w n and try to. The Lord tends to give m e songs w h e n I a m not expecting them." Carrie never had any musical training in voice until she came to L U in 1989. During her time at Liberty she has participated in Concert Choir and the Celebration singers. She sang on a Light team during the s u m m e r campaign to South America in 1990. She has also sung solos in various churches.

Other activities she has been a part of while at college include the Prayer Leader program, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Resident Assistant program. Carrie is attempting to get her music published now, but she said, "If the Lord doesn't open that door, there are m a n y other ways I can use m y music to serve Him." O n e other w a y she has considered is becoming a musicianary, which is someone w h o begins music ministries in other countries. Since high school, she has had an interest in missions and the Latin American culture. She has studied Spanish for six years. Carrie felt that the campaign to South America with Light was a good experience but said that it was hard to just sing for the people and leave right away. "I would like to be more involved in a oneon-one ministry with people," she said. O n e of the things G o d has been teaching her is h o w to have a humble spirit. "I a m seeking the Lord and not what H e can give me," she said. "He's given m e the gift, and I want to use it for H i m while He's given it to me." N o matter what she does with her life, one thing is clear - Carrie Moore has a great desire to serve her Lord...with music.

New Zealander Gains Confidence By Ruth Gutierrez Carlene Baird is a natural when it comes to international exposure. She w a s born in Nelson, N e w Zealand, in 1967 and described her h o m e country as being an "absolutely gorgeous" place. She has also lived in the Philippines and Australia with her parents on their missionary ventures. N o w she is studying in the U.S. Carlene, a senior elementary education major, is working on her student teaching. Her first impression of the U.S. w a s exciting. "I hadn't seen stores, like with cereal boxes," she said. "I'm used to seeing only three or four cereals, because they don't eat a lot of cereal in N e w Zealand." Americans like to socialize while studying hard in school, but it is not so in the "Kiwi" country. Students do not normally enter a university after high school, as high school graduates do in the U.S. "Either you have to be exceedingly rich to go to a university, or you have to be extremely intelligent," Carlene said. "Most go out into the world, and that is the norm." Photo By Vangie Carlene likes the social and personal contacts the Carlene attributes her international exposure to making her the person she is today - confident and teachers have with their students. She gives credit to culturally oriented. "I loved it and I wouldn't trade it her teachers in the Philippines for motivating her to become an elementary school teacher. Her family has for the world," she said. "It has opened u p m y mind to so m a n y things." also played a big part in her life.

LU Education is More Than Boring Lectures By Kim Davis and Scott Eigenhuis

\

v%

Long lectures. Tedious tests. Necessary naps. Sound like a typical L U class? Believe it or not, there is more to a Liberty education. Aside from the everyday classes, students are also involved in learning useful, hands-on skills. Rita Moret, junior h u m a n ecology major, enjoyed her chemistry lab work. "If you see what's going on for yourself, you can learn so m u c h better than if you read it in a book," she said. Journalism students not only work on state-of-theart computer equipment, they also produce the school newspaper, the school yearbook, and numerous other publications for the university. "Our students need a lot of hands-on experience today to keep pace with tremendous technological developments in the professional world," Dr. Al Snyder, chairman of the Journalism Department, said. Tim Hines, graduate student, said the professors cannot be expected to foresee every situation. " W h e n you are working on a project, problems will come u p that were not covered in the lectures," he said. "This gives you a chance to gain experience in your field while still having access to the advice of your instructor.'' Practicums and labs add greater value to the students learning experience. It also gives them an advantage w h e n entering the professional world.

West African Burdened for Niger By Genie Poggemiller Senior Amina Alio is a striking example of a world Christian. Amina is a modern language/linguistics major and hopes to be fluent in six languages by the time she graduates. She can speak Hausa, Zarma, English, French, the national language of Niger, and is currently studying G e r m a n and Spanish. Her h o m e is Niamey, Niger, in West Africa, on the border of the Sahara. It is a Third World country but is pushing toward modernization. Muslims m a k e u p 97 percent of Niger, but moves in the government toward democracy have opened n e w doors to Christianity. The Muslim government has only recently permitted religious freedom. Niger is a relatively peaceful country, A m i n a said, unlike m a n y other surrounding African nations. Peace, however, is not without a price. Thirty years ago there was m u c h fighting with France over territories and independence. Today, with n e w freedoms, complaints and strikes have increased, especially against the government-funded education programs. The people of Niger are a proud people with a rich tribal heritage. Amina's family is no exception. There are three major tribes in Niger. A m i n a is from the Hausa tribe and her family is in the royal line of tribal chiefs through her father, a professional dermatologist w h o also preaches in their local church. Her mother teaches English and has five children. The Alio family used to be Muslim mixed with the beliefs of tribal religions. The gospel came to the Alio family through the ministry of Baptist missionaries. Although Amina's mother was from an Episcopal family, it was in Niger that she and Amina's father came to Christ and were baptized. The missionary w h o discipled them, Arlene Spurlock, also arranged for A m i n a to come to Liberty. Although she views the United States as the land of Photo By Genie Poggemiller opportunity, A m i n a does not like the ungratefulness she has seen. "You (who live in the United States) Amina admitted that there is a great temptation to abuse your freedom and take advantage of it," she remain in America with all its affluence and advansaid. tages but said that her heart is with the people of Niger. A m i n a also showed concern for the m a n y lawsuits "I would feel selfish to stay here," she said. "I want to and strikes that take place in the U. S., which are n o w share the gospel and what I have learned (here at beginning to emerge in her o w n country with inLiberty) with the people there." creased democracy. Although democracy brings religious freedom, she said that it is only good under the right circumstances. "People w h o are free must also be responsible stewards of that freedom."

Discipline Builds Strong Character By Ruth Gutierrez & Kim Davis Senior Johnny Prettyman is a man of many talents. Singing and playing the piano are big parts of Johnny's life. H e acquired his musical ability from both his father and his mother. His father majored in music education at the University of Maryland, plays the trumpet, and is currently their church music pastor. His mother is a voice teacher. Johnny views these talents as a form of discipline after which he has been able to pattern other areas of his life. " M a m m a making m e play the piano was the worst discipline I could ever imagine, but learning to sit d o w n and do something I didn't want to do has greatly influenced other disciplines in m y life," he said. Track is also a very important part of Johnny's life and has been part of the Prettyman family for years. Johnny's father is a track coach and A C C (Atlantic Coast Conference) record holder in track. Johnny and his brother Bobby both run track at Liberty.

Scott Pooch Seizes the Day By K i m Davis "Carpe Diem" ("Seize the Day") should not only be the motto of the "Dead Poet's Society," it should be the motto of every college student striving for greatness. Sports, missions and people have played an important part in helping Scott Pooch, senior physical education major, develop this ambition to grow and learn. Pooch, as he is commonly k n o w n around campus, began his college career at Maranatha Baptist Bible College and later m o v e d on to Pillsbury. H e came to L U in 1987. This w a s his first trip to the East Coast. "I had never been to this side of the country before," he said. "I wanted to stay in a Christian school, but I also wanted a variety of classes and student activities." Pooch took advantage of what L U had to offer. Although he came with a desire to play football and basketball, athletic competition held a m u c h different challenge - running. While at L U , Pooch ran track for three years and cross-country for one year. During this time, he met Traci Tidwell, a m e m b e r of the women's track team w h o would later become his fiancee. She was a source of inspiration to him. " W e would run and lift together," Pooch said. "She encouraged m e to work out w h e n I wouldn't have otherwise." Although distance running w a s physically demanding, Pooch enjoyed the challenge. H e also enjoyed making n e w friends. "I like cheering for teammates as m u c h as I like racing," Pooch said. His most memorable experience was their Spring Break trip to Florida. "It w a s a good time to train together and grow closer as a team through the activities outside of practice." Pooch also took advantage of missions opportunities. In the fall of 1990, he went to Kenya, Africa. A s a m e m b e r of T e a m 7, he spent four months in the Turkana tribe building, preaching and doing numerous other tasks without the luxuries such things as hot showers and air conditioning. H e also saw people living in very poor and unsanitary conditions - some with only the clothes they wore on their backs. "You k n o w there are people living like that, but it can never really strike you as reality until you're actually a m o n g them." According to Pooch, Kenya is a place where the rubber meets the road as far as missions work is concerned. Here, the lessons of humility, faith in G o d and flexibility became more of a reality to him than ever before. "It stretched m e in so m a n y ways and forced m e to do things I didn't k n o w I could do," Pooch said. "I learned more during those four months than I have the whole six and one-half years I've been in college. The times and adventures shared with m y teammates, Rick

Photo by Tim Albertson and Irene (team leaders), and Traci and Merrilea (LU graduates and short-term missionaries in Kenya) are memories I will cherish deeply for the rest of m y life." Although Pooch plans to teach and coach after graduation, he is still seeking God's will. "I a m definitely open to the possibility of missions," he said. A person's college years can be memorable and valuable ones, but according to Pooch, books and classes are not the only important tools for learning - the key is to be well-rounded. "Studies are important, but it's also important to maintain a good balance," he said. "Too m a n y people try to rush through, and they miss a lot of important things college has to offer." His advice is simple. "You have your whole life to work," Pooch said. "While you're in school, take advantage of all the opportunities you can and m a k e friendships that will last."

Ice Maidens Invade Senior Quad by Debbie Reece I've concluded that heat must make some people's body thermometers go crazy. W h e n the heat and humidity soar, they want it cold inside. We're not talking refreshingly cool; Imeandigout-the-sweatshirts-and-wool-socks-or-your-toenailswill-turn-blue cold. Unfortunately, these people decide their calling is to control the temperature inside buildings such as D e M o s s Hall. Thus, w e are all affected by their warped body temperatures. Even if it's 90 degrees outside, most L U students k n o w they can't wear short sleeves without being prepared to freeze in at least one classroom. However, this species of h u m a n being has n o w invaded m y o w n quad. W e (the other eight people in the quad) affectionately call them the "Ice Maidens." If the temperature tops 60 degrees, they complain, "Y'all, it's hotter than Hades in here!" M u c h to the despair of the rest of us, they were assigned to the room right next to the temperature control for the entire quad. They feel perfectly free to use it to their advantage, too. If the sound of teeth chattering starts to drive one of us crazy, w e have to cautiously tiptoe by their door and as silently as possible adjust the temperature gauge. Within a few days of their arrival this semester, everyone else in our quad w a s sporting sore throats,

runny noses and coughs. It's become a cat-and-mouse g a m e with everyone trying to stay u p later than them so they can turn off or at least turn u p the air conditioner. Then m a y b e w e could all get one night's sleep without seeing our breath in the air or having icicles form on our eyelashes. O n e night it was 30 degrees outside, and still they kept turning on the air conditioner. They seem to have no concept of opening the w i n d o w to let cool air in. "They must have grown u p in Alaska," you say. N o , they call North Carolina home. W e have yet to find a logical explanation for their constant state of being overheated. If w e try to explain that w e do not enjoy constantly feeling like we're locked in a meat freezer, they simply say, "Well, can't y'all close your vents. Y o u just don't understand h o w hot it is in our room." They don't understand that our vents have not only been shut, they've been covered, insulated and nailed shut. Even if w e had wanted to open them, w e couldn' t because they're frozen shut. Until someone finds a cure for their mysterious malady, I guess we're destined to a life of sleeping under flannel sheets on balmy nights, suffering from frostbite w h e n our bare feet hit the bathroom floor in the morning and gathering around the microwave to absorb every bit of heat possible.

Poggemiller Respects LBTS Faculty By Genie Poggemiller Dwight Poggemiller, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary student body president, is a good example of the Liberty system of education. Dwight graduated from L U with a 4.0 G P A and decided to enter L B T S to further his education for the purpose of Christian ministry. H e prayed about where he was to attend graduate school and felt God's leading in his life to attend LBTS. This w a s cemented by the job he was offered at Liberty Broadcasting Network. H e found the school to be good economically, it was close to home, and he w a s impressed by the caliber of the faculty. Dwight has great respect for the professors in the seminary. "The real strength of L B T S is its faculty," he said. "There is not one professor w h o m I studied under that did not challenge m e , through their knowledge and walk with God, to strive for excellence in ministry and m y o w n personal relationship with Jesus Christ." Dwight became active in seminary leadership w h e n he was elected president of the seminary graduate student body. It w a s his duty to represent the needs of the students and the school to the faculty and administration. In this, he helped to keep tuition increases d o w n and introduced n e w agreements between students and faculty. Other duties included planning fun activities, as a diversion from the seminary mental and physical workload, and the planning of seminary chapel programs. Dwight thanks God, his family, and L U for helping shape his life's goal into what it is today - to live for God's glory. Dwight's future plans include pursuing a post in short-term missions after his graduation from semin a r y â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps somewhere in Eastern Europe, South Photo by Vangie America or "wherever G o d wills." H e later plans to go on to further study to prepare him to teach and preach ministry training. Practicums would offer seminary students a great opportunity to gain experience by God's Word. H e feels the seminary has been a great help in prepar- ministering in area churches. Dwight believes this training is necessary for future ing him for future ministry. The curriculum offers to pastors to meet the needs and challenges of the next students a chance to really grow and study God's W o r d to, in turn, minister to others. Dwight found his homi- generation. H e emphasized h o w great the wealth of letics class one of the most helpful courses of all because opportunity for worldwide missions is, as w e n o w see it instructs future pastors in the correct manner in the eastern bloc opening u p and religious oppression which to impress upon others the vast importance of defeated. " W h e n w e see the vast challenges of misthe Gospel and the Christian life. H e also emphasized sions," he said," those willing to minister in this w a y are h o w useful his Hebrew and Greek classes have already comparatively few." Worldwide missions is an issue that every Christian become in studying for ministry. should address, and pray to G o d to send more workers Missions and church planting were also high on Dwight'slistof seminary benefits. "I'm really pleased for the harvest. "At the same time w e must be meeting with the strong emphasis on church planting," he said, the needs of our o w n nation and neighbors," Dwight "but there also needs to be more emphasis on practical added, "such as family breakdowns, degenerating moral standards, substance abuse, and challenges of dealing ministry experience in local churches." Dwight would like to see practicums required for all with A I D S in a Christ-like manner." "Christians need to look for ways to get the Gospel graduating seminary students, because he feels semiout as quickly and effectively as possible," he explained. nary training is incomplete without practical hands-on

Strength Coach Sets Good Example By Becky Griggs Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Dave Williams m a y remain behind the scenes, but he is a true leader in the L U athletic program. Williams has been head strength coach for eight years. His main responsibility is to plan a complete conditioning program for all of the intercollegiate sports and to supervise the athletes as they work out. Although he is responsible for all sports, football requires most of his time and effort. Williams considers his work very rewarding. "I enjoy getting to see athletes reach their potential," he said. "It is great to see them getting bigger, faster, stronger, and developing as a whole athlete. It is fulfilling to m e because I see the fruit of m y labor in every g a m e I go to." Williams has set a good Christian example for the athletes and has had the opportunity to win several to Christ. "Every year there is always one or two that claim to be a Christian w h e n they c o m e here and then realize they aren't saved," he said. O n e of his most memorable experiences w a s being with Barry Rice, an L U graduate w h o is n o w assistant strength coach, w h e n he w a s saved. They were in a hotel room on a road trip w h e n Barry realized that he w a s not a Christian. "You could really feel the Holy Spirit's presence in that hotel room," Williams said. Williams stresses the importance of being a good witness for G o d with his athletes. "They need to realize that it's not just playing a ball game, it's representing the Lord," he said. "The athletes should properly represent the Lord by their actions and reactions. I think the Lord is pleased w h e n w e give 100 percent effort. Y o u can't be the best Christian you can be if you loaf. In football, w e knock 'em d o w n , but w e help 'em back up." Physically, Williams desires for the athletes to become a "total package." " W e have to develop a total conditioning program," he said. "They have to be able to use the strength they develop. W e stress technique that will carry over to their sport." Williams spent three years in the A r m y and served his military duty in Korea. H e obtained a master's degree in Physical Education at the University of Alabama, where he gained experience as an assistant strength and conditioning coach. H e then m o v e d on to become head strength and conditioning coach at Texas A & M . Because he has coached at a secular school, Williams recognizes a difference between Christian and non-Christian athletes. " A Christian athlete draws on the Lord for strength," he said. "Christian athletic teams bear one another's burdens through prayer and support. Christian athletes are also able to overcome stress and fatigue, because they k n o w they can do all things through Christ."

Photo by Vangie H e has also learned to be humble throughout his career as a strength coach. "There is no corporate ladder to climb," Williams said. "Being strength coach requires a servant's attitude and a desire to see people get better." L U athletics are a top priority to Williams, and it is his personal goal to see that they improve. " M y goal is to help L U athletics be the best," he said. "I would like to see us be national champions and see athletes and coaches on television giving the Lord all the glory. I would also like to see more L U athletes in professional sports with the testimony of Sid Bream (Atlanta Braves first baseman)." Williams considers his job a hobby. "I enjoy experimenting with different methods of training," he said. "I sometimes feel funny getting paid for it!" Coach Williams is a true m a n of God. With his knowledge of physical as well as spiritual strength, he has m a d e a lasting impression on the lives of L U athletes.

Snyder Motivates Toward Success By Melody Walker To have a professor honestly concerned about you is an encouragement for you to succeed and continue even w h e n times get rough. Dr. Al Snyder, L U journalism department chairman, is one of them. "Motivating students is a tremendous job," Snyder said. "Seeing the junior and senior students work hard to prepare for their future is exciting. I really enjoy what I do and h o w it contributes to the lives of the students." "The Lord has raised u p the journalism program," Snyder said. " W e have a serious need for Christians in journalism today. They are the 'key gatekeepers' in society. Journalism is too tightly controlled by antiChristian forces. W e need Christians in journalism to influence our nation for Christ and for truth." "Liberty's journalism program rates favorably with the best in the country in quality," Snyder added. "LU has a top-notch faculty, excellent practicum opportunities and state of the art equipment." Snyder has a B. A. in journalism, a M . A. in broadcast journalism and a doctorate in public relations. H e came to Liberty from the mission field, after serving 21 years in missionary radio ministry in Liberia and the East Caribbean. A s a young person Snyder sang duets with his sister on the K Y B Club children's program over Christian radio station W M B I in Chicago.

Dr. Haag Teaches From Experience By Becky Griggs Dr. Larry Haag knows missions. He has been there. "Once you've been on the mission field, you'll never be the same," he said. Haag and his family spent 10 years as missionaries in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Their main emphasis was on evangelism, church planting, and leadership training. In the short amount of time they were there, they planted four churches and worked with three other churches. Haag, w h o is n o w the chairman of the L U missions department, prayed for the opportunity to teach missions someday. Through contacts at Baptist Bible College, the Liberty missions director contacted Haag in 1981 while he w a s on the mission field in Brazil. It was during that same year that Haag and his family came to Lynchburg on furlough, and their prayers were answered. H e started teaching missions that year. Haag is also the missions director for T h o m a s Road Baptist Church and is responsible for the organization of the World Impact Conference. H e has three sons and two daughters. Three have attended Liberty in the past, and two sons still attend. Haag enjoys teaching. "The personal interaction with the students is great," he said. "I really enjoy the classroom setting." His missions experience has helped him become a

better teacher. " M y experience helps m e to k n o w h o w to present the practical side of missions and the challenges before the students," he said. "It's not just reading a book, it's sharing actual experiences that you've had." O n e of his most memorable experiences w a s leading one particular Brazilian to Christ. H e saw this young m a n go through the Bible institute that w a s at their church, study missions, and eventually become a missionary in the jungles of Brazil. This m a n left an impression on his life. M a n y students have gone through the L U missions program since Haag has been here. "Approximately 350 graduates have either been on the field or are currently there," he said. " W e have missionary graduates located on every continent. The missions major has grown more this year than any other time that I have been here." Haag is aware of the importance of missionary training. "It gives you insight into cultural differences," he said. "It helps a student become sensitive to differences. W e all stress that the people of the world are different, but not inferior." Haag has fulfilled two separate missions. H e has been a missionary, and he has been able to teach others h o w to be missionaries.

Daubert Teaches English In China By Vangie Poggemiller "China is one large English classroom," according to Dr. Russ Daubert, w h o w a s recently n a m e d to Who's W h o A m o n g American College Professors. In the summer of 1990 he had the opportunity to teach English behind the "bamboo curtain." Dauberf s opportunity came through the English Language Institute, China (ELIC), which is directed by Christians. "This is a California-based organization which has taken advantage of the fact that the Chinese government is desperate for English teachers," he said. "English is the key to the economic future of China, because it is the language of businesses, computers and technology. Right n o w the government does not care w h o you are as long as you will teach English." Daubert has taken advantage of other opportunities he has had to travel and see different countries. In 1987 he went with Light Ministries to Romania. Since then he has m a d e two more trips back - once to teach and once last s u m m e r with his family. H e has also been to Haiti, H o n g K o n g and the Philippines. Daubert applied to the ELIC program with hopes of going during the s u m m e r of 1989. Because of his doctorate, the institute gladly accepted him and gave him the position of team leader. However, due to the unrest in China and the attack on the students in Tiananmen Square, the teaching projects were cancelled. After raising support during the s u m m e r of 1990, The Chinese people welcomed the ELIC teachers Daubert flew to California for two weeks of intense training. During this time, twenty teams, comprised of and gave them the best of treatment. "The people were open somewhat, but the government still kept a close ten people each, prepared for their mission. W h e n the training w a s complete, the teams, along watch over its citizens," Daubert said. While Daubert was there, some students talked about with Daubert, flew to Beijing.

Dr. Chamberlin Commits Herself To Education By Ruth Gutierrez Dr. Ruth Chamberlin gives new meaning to the word "commitment." Chamberlin w a s one of Liberty's pioneers and is n o w finishing her 17th year on the L U faculty. She has been a chairperson of the English Department and has served on nearly every major committee of the university. Presently, she teaches freshman composition and world literature. Chamberlin is a positive thinker and believes that everyone has potential for being creative. "I think all people are touched by G o d with a creative element that came to the h u m a n race before the fall," she said. Her desire for the L U English Department is that it become one of the best in the country. This will not only enhance the students' total educational experience, it will also help them be better prepared for their future careers. "Students are m y main reason for being here," she said. She has served in such positions as a personnel manager, a writer of English letters for the Press Counselor of the Iranian Embassy, the office manager of an attorney firm in Washington, D.C., the director of a city-county Headstart s u m m e r program, the editor of an English language magazine published in Vietnam, the author of a monograph on missions exhibits, and a consultant to an editorial board of a textbook. The major work of Chamberlin's life, however, has been in the field of teaching. Prior to coming to Liberty, Chamberlin taught in public schools in both Ohio and Michigan. She also taught in a school for missionaries' children in Vietnam as well as in' three universities. Besides "regular" English classes, her assignments involved such diverse activities as teaching English as a second language to the military and civilians in Vietnam, coaching speech and drama teams engaged in contest work, and supervising student teachers. Long before she ever became a teacher, Chamberlin had developed an avid interest in learning. " M y mother read to us," she said. "In the ninth grade, I had access to a public library where I often read a novel a day, and in high school, I had a English teacher w h o m a d e literature and language live." Enrolling in college w a s an exciting adventure for Chamberlin. "I was fascinated with learning every-

Photo by Vangie thing I could, in and out of the classroom," she said. "It never occurred to m e that four years of course work could be equated with an undergraduate education." Chamberlin received a three-year diploma in Bible and missions at Nyack College. She went on to earn both a B.A. and a B.S. at Ashland College, where she majored in English with concentrations in education speech, drama and radio. Since then Chamberlin has received her master's degree at the University of Michigan and her doctorate at Kent State. Her education reflected her interest in reading. Chamberlin's faith in Christ became established w h e n she was doing her undergraduate work. " M y going to college was the result of a spiritual commitment," she said. Chamberlin certainly has had a life full of educational experiences. Her knowledge and charisma have impacted her students' lives and have given them an example of commitment that they can follow for years to come.

Skoumbourdis Enjoys Opportunities By Ruth Gutierrez M a n y westerners k n o w the city of Nazareth, Israel, as the place where Jesus Christ grew up, but to Dr. Evangelos Skoumbourdis, it is home. His educational background in Israel has been very beneficial to him. "By the time you graduate from high school, you would have been exposed to a m i n i m u m of three languages and four years of math, physics, and chemistry," he said. Education in Israel is also free until the age of 18. "Education is a privilege," Skoumbourdis said. "You don't buy an education, you earn it." At the age of 19, Skoumbourdis' parents m o v e d to Greece. H e decided, however, to m a k e a different m o v e and pursue his career. "It was an opportunity to come to the United States," he said. In 1980 Skoumbourdis became a U.S. citizen because of his agreement with the Constitution. "The U.S. is great for those w h o love it and want to serve it and become a citizen," he said. Although freedom is important to those coming to America, Skoumbourdis said that the U.S. offers m u c h more. "There are people w h o come to the United States and want an opportunity," he said. Skoumbourdis has been busy since his arrival in the U.S. H e acquired a scholarship while doing his undergraduate work at Tennessee Polytechnic Institute. During his third and fourth year, he became a part-time instructor teaching physics labs. H e attained two bachelor's degrees, in physics and math. H e also received a master's degree in mathematics. After moving to Oklahoma, Skoumbourdis acquired a master's degree in physics and a doctorate in mathematical physics at Oklahoma State University. Skoumbourdis has noticed m a n y differences between his native country and his n e w home. Acquiring a teaching position in Israel is very competitive compared to the United States, where cities and counties are trying to recruit more teachers. W h e n applying to a university, examinations are given by the State Board of Education. Family values are also different. "At h o m e w e have a stable society and family stability," he said. Family ties and activities are basics in Israel. Skoumbourdis also described Israel as being a "multicultural" country, rich in tourism, trade and transportation. Skoumbourdis is an associate professor of mathematics and also teaches physics. H e is n o w in his sixth year of teaching at Liberty. H e dedicates his time to his students and is glad w h e n they learn and ask ques-

Photo by Vangie tions. "Teachers become so involved at times in research, that they forget they are teachers," he said. His goal is to help his students become the best they can possibly be in whatever field they choose to go into. "I want to educate others so that they can become successful and promote Christ," he said. For Skoumbourdis, learning is a lifelong process. "I learn something n e w every day," he said. "I go to m y colleagues and interact and ask questions." During his spare time, Skoumbourdis likes to drive his Chevy u p into the mountains or play Bach and Schubert classics on his piano. Skoumbourdis loves the Lord and gives H i m all the glory for his accomplishments. Although he has been able to achieve m a n y goals throughout his life, the most important thing to him has been his relationship to the Lord.

Dr. Fields Resigns After 14 Years Dr. Dennis Fields, vice president for administrative relations, resigned December 15 after being with Liberty since 1977. Fields left in pursuit of full-time Christian work. "God has been dealing with me," he said. "I had been involved with the ministry as a layman for 10 or 11 years before coming to Liberty, but I k n e w even then that G o d had called m e to preach." Fields had been directly involved in several school programs, including Christian/community service, Selah, The Liberty Champion, alumni relations, R O T C and aviation. Fields claims that the university has had a positive influence on his family. "The influence of the university as a whole has been a family-wide influence," he said. " M y wife is a graduate of Liberty, m y son is a graduate, and m y daughter will be a graduate of Liberty this M a y . So, it's been a total personal growth for all of us." The one thing Fields will miss the most is the student body. H e offers them some strong advice. "Be true to yourself, and be true to God. Maintain your integrity in the face of any circumstance. Capitalize on the educational opportunities at Liberty University," he said. Fields influenced the ministry in m a n y ways, and he will be greatly missed in the years ahead.

Campus Pastor Bi

Relationships

By Becky Griggs and Kathleen Craig

LU Campus Pastor Rob Jackson wants to set a good example for his family and students. "I see m y most important role as keeping m y relationship right with the Lord," he said. "That way, I will be an encouragement to students in their walk with Jesus Christ." Although Rob has been involved with Liberty for 11 years, he has only been the campus pastor for three years. Before coming to Liberty, he was in the U.S. Air Force Academy for almost two years. After that, he went to Life Action Ranch in Buchanan, Michigan, where he was a team director and helped run a camping program. H e met his wife T a m m y there, and they were married on May 23,1980. H e came to Liberty as a student with no job, but he felt God wanted him here. Because of his experience in the service, he got a job with campus security working midnight shift. After finishing his B.S. in pastoral studies, he became the associate dean of m e n and then the associate director of Light Ministries. Later, Vernon Brewer contacted Rob and told him that Dr. Falwell and he would like Rob to fill the office of campus pastor. "I didn't know the position was open and I never applied, but I had been praying for a more extensive and positive ministry that dealt more directly with a pastoral position. God definitely answered m y prayers." Rob received his master's degree in the division of religion on January 28,1991. H e graduated S u m m a C u m Laude. His goal as campus pastor is for every student to be The rest of his time is spent with his wife, T a m m y , and his able to answer this question in a realistic way: "Where do three children, Beth, 10, Jessica, 5, and Ryan, 2. I fit in God's plan to evangelize the world?" "If they can't Rob sees a big spiritual need in the lives of L U students. fit in, I don't feel like they've gotten what they should "The greatest need in America and the church is genuine, have at LU," Rob said. "The bottom line of L U and m y Holy Ghost revival," he said. "Revival that breaks d o w n office is to equip people to use gifts and talents God has the walls of L U and spreads to Lynchburg and then the given them to affect the world for Jesus Christ, no matter nation.

"There is Rob is content with his position and hopes to stay for a segment for prayer requests and a testimony time, as long as the Lord allows. "I can't believe I get paid for along with some preaching." what I do, because I love the vast majority of it," he said. There are many programs at Liberty that impress Rob. "As long as the school sees the need and God gives m e the "I like the excitement and vibrance of individual relation- freedom, I plan on staying." ships with the Lord," he said. "I also like the vision Dr. Rob wants to be remembered in two ways. "First, as a Falwell has of using intercollegiate sports as an outreach father and husband w h o loved his wife and kids and w h o to youth in America. I have enjoyed being the soccer they could see Jesus in," he said. "Second, not by m y team's chaplain, as well as working with the tennis team accomplishments, but because of the presence of Christ in the things I do get accomplished." and occasionally traveling with the wrestling team." Rob spends some of his free time outdoors, hunting "I get blessed more in this job than I could ever hope to and fishing. H e also plays raquetball three times a week.bless others. I count it a great privilege to be here."

Letter From the Editor

The hardest part of completing this book wasn't the all-nighters or the openly voiced concern of students who missed their dorm shots, or coaches who insisted on their proper titles. The hardest part was condensing the letter from the editor. Hoiv ca such a year be summed up in only one page.?

A perfect book is the dream of every editor. For some, this dream dies after the last deadline has been sent in. Our dream nose-dive after the first deadline. Our green-around-the-collar staff was willing to do anything (including tile removal) to get the job done and on time. For most of the staff, this was the first time working on the yearbook. Hopefully this won't be reflect in our work.

By the last deadline the staff learned to stay up all night and attend classes without losing their Liberty smile (interpr gastroenteritis). We also became expert movers by moving to five different offices within four months. We learned several thi by trial and error, but we learned most from the people we came in contact with. Earl Sargeant graciously taught us wrapper clean-up and the importance of long distance phone calls. The Vines Center maintenance crew taught us the importance of office position and communication by letter. From each person on the staff we learned something. The following are just a few that come to mind:

Kim Davis (copy editor) taught us what late night talks were all about. Jennifer Hankins (layout editor) taught us all abo late nights and getting our work done. Vangie Poggemiller (photo editor) taught us that reserved people do have a sense of humor. Jennifer Blandford (assistant everything) taught us how to make fools of ourselves and still demand respect. Becky Griggs (assistant copy editor) taught us that not all eager beavers have buck teeth. Steve Green showed us how to hurl through our noses. Tim Hines (computer) taught us that there are still men in the world who are deeper than dorm room carpet. Tim Kania (photographer) taught us that there are still men in the world who admire Home-Ec. majors. Scott Eigenhuis (computer) taught us that some Californians have a broader vocabulary than "Dude". Damien Bates (personal assistant to the editor) taught us the importance of getting to bed by 10:30 pm.

Despite the all-female editorial staff, our year passed without any arguments or hair pulling. The staff wrote stories, mo office furniture, took pictures, moved office furniture, edited proofs, moved office furniture, went sleepless for days and mo office furniture.

Our staff is excited and nervous about sharing this book with you. We hope that we have served our purpose well, for "this book is yours despite the claim the staff makes to it." Carolyn Van der Veen Editor-in-Chief

If everyone in the world were students, everyone would be really smart, unless they couldn't find their classroom. Walking to the senior dorms is fun, unless someone pretends to stop and pick feel kind of stupid. Riding on the subway is fun, except w h e n you can't find a seat and you just broke your leg. Singing Jingle Bells in chapel while un, excep were inside it.

Deep Thoughts By lack Handy

If I was sky diving and m y parachute didn't open and all m y friends were watching, I think it would be a funny joke to pretend I was swimming. I f dogs ever take over the world, and they choose a leader, I hope they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some chihuahuas with some good ideas. Once 1 saw a fat lady slip and fall on the wet sidewalk. I started to laugh, but then I thought...what if I was the ant she fell on? Then it wouldn't seem quite so funny. Clowns aren't funny. They're not funny at all. As a matter-of-fact, they're kind of scary. I don't k n o w w h y 1 feel this way. It might be because one day I went to the circus, and a clown killed m y dad.

Time By Tim Hine A muse came to m e by night. "What lackest thou?" he said. I thought a moment and scratched m y head. "I need more time," I soon replied. "Time!" he saicJ with an evil eye. "You lack no time. YouVe time to murmur your pitiful fate. YouVe time to ponder your lowly state. You've time to wish great things to have, And time to waste on thoughts so sad. You've time to envy, time to hate; You've time to curse the time you wait. The time you have is quite enough, If you wouldn't waste the stuff. Your lack of time is in your head. Your lack of sense is real instead."
