Have you noticed how folks 60+ are very much into the "alumni banquets" and such (just a fancy word for multiple year high school reunions). That seems to not be the case for people of my generation. Sure, my class holds a reunion. But outside of a small clique of people who hung out with each other during that time, nobody else shows up (including me).
Something got lost from the 50's and 60's up into the 80's. Some "connection" with fellow students that I have yet to discover.
Now with all the technology out there keeping us connected 24/7, this "connection" is sure to dissolve ever more quickly.
