Will our HS class have its reunion this year? No word yet. I haven't decided whether I'd go, but I'm not inclined to. I imagine that if I went, those who weren't friends but nonetheless knew who I am would not say hi. Maybe I'd do the same as well. When everyone has spread far apart and has few connections with people in their class, a reunion might seem like a pure exercise in nostalgia. Reunions show how little community there is in a high school, even among the cliques. We were too young to know what friendship was on our own, and no one every tried to teach us what it is to be a friend.
