Short Thought 62 (old classmates)

I doubt very much I’m the first person to think this about my past, but if you had told me in grade school and high school what might become of some of my classmates, I wouldn’t have believed it. Teenage pregnancies, suicides, prison, heart disease, deaths, divorces, alcoholism, and romantic pairings I’d have never considered. And this is just the stuff I happen to know about.  When I think about old classmates, even if I know them in present day, I still imagine kids. And these sorts of things don’t happen to kids.

    Yes, these train wrecks from the past appall me,but I am grateful I am not among them (yet) and realize that only luck has kept me from stumbling ( for the most part). Why should it be others and not me who who get avalanched by life?
