A reminder to express thanks

From Don Daake’s latest column, a great reminder for students:

“This summer I’m going to my 50th high school reunion to celebrate with my classmates. I have attended nine out of nine of my 5-year class reunions. We spend a lot of time reflecting and savoring, and that brings joy and happiness… But a warning here. During all those years we NEVER invited our teachers and administrators to join us. What a big mistake. We never had the opportunity to say thanks for their dedication and influence… After 50 years probably almost none of them are left. So if you are a younger reader, urge your class to learn from our mistake.”
