36 years ago, 1985. I graduated from high school on Friday, that Flag Day, 1985.
There were 377 of us that day. I’ve known some of them since before high school; for sure on that day, I felt connected to every one of them. They were my first tribe. Kindred spirits, launched into the world on that day.
And we’re still going, most of us, anyway. And we’re still connected, some of us, anyway.
Grateful for that feeling, for those people, my tribe, everyday.
All of us with that common mark of Flag Day, Graduation Day, 1985.
