Garland High School, Class of '42

 Last Saturday evening we had our Garland HS alumni reunion. This class, the class of 1942 was recognized as the 70 year Honorees. Unfortunately, only 3 of us are still around and Jack, Don and I were all there. A lot of water has gone over the dam during those 70 years. WW II was in progress at the time we graduated and the outlook was very dismal. Yet, I believe there was a unity within the country that is certainly lacking today. FDR had told us that "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself". Winston Churchill said " We will never give up" and we persevered. We were always a close-nit group and the 3 of us remaining, still are.
