I had my 30yr class reunion last night and on the table coming in were pictures set up of classmates who had died since graduation. We had 198 in our class and have only lost ten. Four were auto accidents with two of those within a year of graduation and both, ironically, traveling to Oregon for college. Two committed suicide. Two were severely handicapped special education kids who died of natural causes related to their condition, and one drug overdose and one died of cancer a couple of years ago. I was surprised at the low number we had lost in 30yrs of living. My partner at work graduated in Ohio and told me a couple of months ago that he had lost 12 of his classmates THIS YEAR ALONE to heroin overdoses. He's 27 and his class had around 600 kids in it. Was curious if other folks here had kept track of their classmates and if they went to reunions. I know we have a very high number of people here who claim to be the social outcasts in their high schools and seem very angry and bitter over the whole thing. The ten year reunion is still full of that anger and people trying to prove how successful they are. The twenty year is much less about that, and the thirty year; there is a lot of hugging... My buddy was still bitter over people that snubbed him in high school. I encouraged him to go to this reunion and he did. He was shocked at how nice everyone was and how much people had changed. Just curious as to other's reunion experiences and survival rate of classmates.
