generation gap

Before class I was telling my students a story about how you never know how you will feel about the people you know in high school.  I am 30 years out of high school and two friends from back in the day, each having raised their own families and then divorced, have recently reconnected and kindled a romance after all these years.  It has been pretty amazing to watch, a testament to the fact that life is long, we often get second chances, and love is a powerful and wonderful thing.

One student's response:  "I wonder if I'll be alive in 30 years."
