MURIEL LAWRSNCE "Where have I failed?" is the cry of the woman whose Gl son in Korea renounced loyalty to our country for loyalty to the Communists. ' "I have believed," she told the press, "that a mother should start from birth to train a child for life. Perhaps I overdid it." Then opening her Bible, she read to reporters, "'Train a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will depart from it,'" There is time, then. Her son is not "old," but only 17, When a few more years have passed for him, return to us may become the deep purpose of his life. "I must find out where I have failed," cries his mother, "because I have three other children and must not make the same mistake." The failure will be over-rigidity or over-laxity. It will be anxiety and self-distrust. It will be guilty and fearful reaction from this experience. It will b self-condemnation. And that is all it will be. Once I knew a gentle and learned j man. He was a child psychiatrist of distinguished reputation. One bright summer morning when he was in consulation with two troubled parents, his beautiful 17-year- old daughter took a gun, shot and killed herself. I said that he was of distinguished reputation. Can we feel the shock among the people of his community? Can we hear the condemning gossip? Can we see the pleased malice in the yes of those who spoke false .consoling words to the Authority who had turned out to be as humanly vulnerable as themselves? Did he leave his neighbors? Did this father who had failed with one child give up his work among other children? 2STo, he did" none of these things. He remained in his community. He went on with his work among the people who knew him as a vulnerable human being like themselves. .., Was he a failure? I 'simply wouldn't know about that, or when I think of him, as I always do when I fail, all I see in him is valor and steadfastness. Jesus lost Judas; and failure with someone is the human experience of us all. When it comes to us in the shape of a child's rejection of what we've tried to give him, we can do two things. We can give up in fear and sell- hate; or like rny brave and successful friend, use what has happened to us to find new compassion and new love for those that remain to us.
