She wasn't afraid because it was a

As she walked along under the tall elm

safe from harm and danger.
When she reached the alley, which was
a short cut to her house, she decided

not, you're never alone. Did you know
that 98% of teenagers will not stand
up for God?
PS: God is always there in your heart
and loves you no matter what.....and
if you stand up 4 him he will stand up for you.
