Class of 97-98
An invitation to a reception for students at the school where I taught 1st grade in Illinois was forwarded to me here in Hawaii. I'm looking at this old class photo and it brings back such memories. There's that bright child who will be the next President Obama, another who will be a corporate CEO, yet another who will be a nurse, a teacher, a comedian, an actor...
I have sent in my regrets with a letter to the students telling them that contrary to what they may have heard, the world is a beautiful place full of new friends to be made and opportunities waiting. It's also a world of responsibilities and I did tell them that I've broken my foot so they should watch where they step.
