Two things in life that will always be a focal point are hometowns and high schools. The older we get the more we tend to focus on both. We look back and remember.
In the growing years, we make decisions that will be with us for the rest of our lives. Some of the choices are good: some, a source of regret. It does not seem like it in the days of our youth, but life passes quickly. One day, the face in the mirror is young; turn around, there are wrinkles, and the hair has turned white.
If you moved away, a visit to your hometown is always a good opportunity to view changes since your “growing up” days. It is a time to remember and to visit your friends and family. High school reunions bring us back to the times of our youth and the classmates who shared it with us.
For each one of us, the memories of family, friends and classmates will stay with us throughout our life. For each of us, there will always be a hometown and a high school from the days of our youth.
