It can be that for sure, but it needn't be. I haven't seen some of my classmates since I graduated. It would be nice to hear how they have been. What ever each has done is fine.

One of our group, the validictorian, went to KU and after that went to Harvard, majoring in philosophy and language studies. He settle in Toronto teaching at the university. He has been on several boards and has been published several times. Never married but living with a long time gal. No kids

One worked in kitchens of a couple of restaurants . Raised several children

Others "just" housewives.

All good.

Truth betold, this time three years ago I wouldn't give good odds on my being here for this. It's been one of my goals.

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
