To West Central’s Class of 1961 (Poem)

Gathering again after fifty years, WC’s Class of ’61,
Celebrating with a core group, invested in making this reunion special.
Honoring those resistant or unable to reconnect,
Honoring those yet unaccounted for,
Honoring those who have passed to the far beyond.

Marking the cycle of lives so dispersed, while noting the common bond,
Held in our individual adaptability to life’s changing events.
Marking achievements often found outside the expected,
Marking joys and sorrows, all lending to creating character so strong.
Supporting potential needs for healing old wounds,
All the while, we celebrate the basic fact, we made it thus far!

Happy 50th All Y’all……….Nate Bender
