The SOP, ROTC, VFW and One Young, Lost Soul
Dear Lost Soul,
Our hearts were broken when we learned of your reckless deed-- http://www.cordeledispatch.com/archivesearch/local_story_081195124.html. Are you filled with regret?
We know you are suffering. We believe that, if you could turn back time, you would never have allowed this evil to enter your heart.
The Student Operated Press has released you from one portion of your burden. We have given $267.69 to fulfill the commitment the VFW made to your local ROTC. We have done this in your name. The ROTC prays for your rescue.
Nevertheless, dear, you have broken many hearts. Surely, you must know this. We believe that, when you kiss your mother, your children or your wife, you pray they will never learn of this one reckless decision that you have made.
Perhaps you are so young that you simply have a lover. We pray this is true for you, a soul so in need of love. Yet, when you look into her eyes and tell her, I love you. You are forever my gift from God. " do you fear a knock on your door?
You can be free of this curse. As my own sweet mother taught me, We all fall into manure, the triumph is not getting used to the smell. "
"Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. "
The prophet, Isaiah 1:18
