“Sister Simon’s Saints,” Friend, Aug. 1998, 39
WELCOME! I’m Sister Simon.
Hi! I’m Ramón.
Hello. I’m Cathlyn.
I’m Mei Lin.
Hi! I’m David.
And I’m Joshua.
Hey, remember us from school? You were doing some pretty good dives today.
You’re in luck. I know where my dad keeps his booze, and nobody’s home. Come with us, and let’s see what we’ve been missing.
What’s the matter? Mommy and Daddy say no-no?
Yes they do. And so does—
So does who? Sounds like a wimp to me.
I’ll tell you sometime when you really want to know. For now, I can tell you that He’s certainly no wimp. Let’s just say He’s my best friend.
Why don’t you forget this friend and have some fun?
Because I promised that I’d always remember Him, and I hope I always do.
She doesn’t have a clue.
They just don’t understand.
