Transcript From the desk of: Lara Schultz Co-editor-in-chief Power, Dizzy with it stumble. Detail A chance for us to quarrel. Anger, My head is shaken violently. If I could calm or restrain you — for the sake of pity — Save the pistol. Save the synic's tongue. Save the cool white stare. And treat me to an honest face sometime. Amaze me now. Our world is in chaos — it appears impossible for us to attain a peaceful and harmonious coexistence with our neighbors. There is always a war; always a scandal, for our society to embrace. Yet, we go about our daily affairs and hope that the rude intrusions of the outside world do not enter our coveted space. We blindly continue with our jobs and our beliefs in the hope that all that is bad will simply go away. Occasionally, we peak outside and allow pieces of the outside world to coincide with our own. We rally a cause or condemn a vicious tyrant. This occasional whim to voice our concerns must not continue. Perhaps we are the generation that will make the difference. Perhaps we are the generation that will stop the continuing hate and violence. As it stands, our generation has had the most attainable educational opportunities. Perhaps we will use these opportunities to relieve the existing racial tension, the misery of poverty, the humility of illiteracy, the sorrow of child abuse and the human waste of drug abuse. One day soon it will be apparent to everyone that our world is falling apart. It will also be true then that our negligence has led to its ruin. For the children's sake, we should make this world a forum for them to far surpass even our own accomplishments. Sincerely, Lara G. Schultz Co-editor-in-Chief 1987-88 HOUSTONIAN A special thank you to Natalie Merchant, (of 10,000 Maniacs) for the use of the words from the song, "Scorpion Rising" (Wishing Chair. 1985) Editor's Note 335
