"I'm the first to admit I'm scared of Jesus coming back and ending my earthly existence. And that's evident in my walk and my inability to give up everything I have to Christ. That's why we write to ourselves as much as anyone else. We're writing songs we can't even live up to!"
Eric Campuzano of Prayer Chain, quoted in CMM Magazine
"I grew up seeing a lot of family violence toward my mother...I thought that's the way a man should act...The control-it's part of an insecurity. I didn't have control of anything else in my life. Finally I thought I could control someone else. Why not do it?-make someone weak, me strong."
Emiliano, 18, member of a men's group dealing with abusive behaviors, quoted in Choices
"I learned why our culture is so dependent on the media...I also learned that life is an advertisement in a way. Where do you suppose people learn what kind of diaper to put on their children or what kind of aspirin to take. It was advertised or shown somewhere at one point; on a billboard, in a newspaper/catalog or on TV... They [the advertising industry] give us what we consider to be values, and we, the target audience, eat it all up and then go on to boast that we do things the way they 'should' be done."
Cherry Aycock, high school junior,
speaking about her media arts class
"I'm all for bringing back some old-fashioned hypocrisy. I think the kind of dysfunctional behavior that we are subjecting our children to gives them no role models-gives them the feeling that anything goes, that they can do anything with no consequences and get on television, which, my goodness, validates everything."
Hillary Rodham Clinton, referring to TV talk shows during
an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
