I started to think about just how different our lives are - we have many similarities, but really even the towns we are in are probably so different in many ways as well. The headline here is that 13 catholic schools (12 elementary and 1 jr high) are closing! Yikes! Two of them I attended. My high school closed 3 years after I graduated. So, I now have only one school that I attended still open. That was the public school I went to for 2 years after my mom left my dad and before she remarried - she just could not afford private education on her own. This is pretty sad for all the kids impacted (1,868) and the staff that will lose their jobs (about 200 people). But, also for those of us that have memories of attending school there. It saddens me. What is going on in your town today?
