|Christina, Me, Sue - Graduation Day|
People of my specific age group had one foot in the 1950's and the other in the turbulent 60's and 70's. I always felt torn between my traditional upbringing and the more demanding world I was being offered. I would blame the times for my lack of focus and inability to figure out my life's goals - except I am surrounded by women (and men) who managed to excel.
In high school I was editor of the newspaper for a while, I was deeply involved in student government, I helped plan dances and a recycling center on the campus. At the reunion - I was a non-entity for the most part. I loved going with my friends Christina and Sue. Sue even spent the night at my house so we had a long visit. Christina and I had our photo taken together as we have at all the reunions (I always make her go.) I missed other old friends who were not there. There was one woman who remembered me though I didn't recognise her. There were a handful I remembered who looked blankly at me.
|People I didn't know! We had a class of about 800 students.|
