Review by Connie's Jogging Suit
Very well told! This is an episode that no
one would want to miss a second of it! It is an episode that most
youngsters could handle, even though they warn parents that they should
listen too. It was kind of sad, even more tragic if Karen would have
been a main character. Karen was such a wonderful girl. I like the part
when she said at the fall festival, "I was going to dance, but I forgot
my dancing shoes" as a cover up for her having her leg removed. If you
want to hear more of Donna reaction to her dead friend, listen to "The
Very Best Of Friends". Sorry if it's not the best review. It's my first
review. See ya.
Review by MEG Gaither
The episode "Karen" is a wonderful way to show what truly
is going on all around us: the death of loved ones. Every listener's
heart will go out to the friends and family members of Karen, a young
girl who has a bout with cancer. The faith that Karen displays through
her illness is both amazing and encouraging to others. Though rather
poignant, this episode is masterfully written and is highly recommended.
Review by MEG Gaither
This one makes me cry every time! Karen's faith is so
touching and the hope she has gives me the chills (the good kind). It's
really sad if you don't believe in Jesus, but if you do then it's really
Review by Amelia
'Karen' is a brilliant episode. Karen, Donna Barclay's
best friend, gets cancer and dies. But that's not all there is to the
story, there is so much more to it..5 stars doesn't do it justice.
Karen Crosby is a lovable girl. Her faith is admirable, and really
teaches you a lesson. You can't help but love Karen\'s personality.
"In the land of fadeless day, lies the city foursquare. It shall never
pass away, and there is no night there....all the gates of pearl are
laid, in the city foursquare...for the Lamb is all the light, and there
is no night there.." so I just skipped a lot of lines, but it's
I recommend this episode so much, I hope it touches all of you like it
did me. Remember, God has something better for you in heaven than
anything on earth.
