What Did High School Teach Us?

Daily writing prompt
Describe something you learned in high school.

I started this post several days ago and set it aside to travel.

Unlike this photo of my youngest and besties dutifully studying in the Wayland Academy library, my best high school learning took place in the hallways, lunch room and school parking lot.

While my home town and public high school lacked the kind of diversity that is defined today, we were all very much individuals with different ways of interacting and different priorities and different personalities and etc.

My graduation class was the end of the baby boom era. We were the largest graduation class. There were over 500 grads in my class, plus the other two classes meant well over 1,500 combined students and staff in one building daily during the school year.

That’s a lot of words to says; I learned that people, even if they mostly look alike are very different and have to be approached differently if you want as positive an experience with them as possible.
