 Reunion," provides us an opportunity, not simply to
 have fun and reminisce, but also to connect, share
 learn and inspire. Sure, that's quite a bombastic and
 groan-worthy introduction, but please hear me out.

 we were doing, we spontaneously developed social

 people who can directly relate to what is a rather
 unique experience in the larger context of the human
 Story
 After 13 years of common experiences, we were let
 loose to try our best at making life what we each
 would like it to be, and it seems to me that our
 experiences have varied rather widely. Thirteen years
 of common experience, followed by ten years of
 diversity, and then an opportunity to reconvene and
 discuss life sounds like a potent formula for growth to
 me, but it's up to us to set the conditions to make the
 most of it. With ten years distance from the public
 school experience, we each have ten years more
 perspective, experience, and understanding of
 ourselves and the world we inhabit. I'd like to listen
 better than I did in HS, but I don't much care to hear all
 the meaningless noise and superficialities. want
 hear the most compelling ideas and lessons that you
 have learned since we graduated. I want to spend the
 valuable time we share hearing your most sincere
 expression
 We are the players on the board of existence at this
 place in space and time, the game is more dynamic
 than ever, and we really don't know what we are
 capable of achieving here before we die. Two things
 understand better now than ever is that we work more

 powerfully in collaboration than in antagonism, and
 that amazing things can happen when we collectively
 focus our attention on things worthy of it. I'd like us to
 brainstorm a format for the reunion in which there is
 plenty of time for free interaction, yet also enough
 structure to facilitate a space in which everyone can
 share the things of most importance to them. One
 idea that I had for this is to schedule a portion of the
 reunion in which anyone who wants to share can have
 up to 3 minutes to speak publicly, with amplification
 during which the collective intention is to truly listen
 Group attention in a gathering this large is obviously a
 tall order, but if we put together a schedule of the
 speakers beforehand, each speaker prepares his or
 her thoughts in advance and really concentrates them
 into under 3 minutes, we keep the pace moving
 between speakers, do it before people are too drunk,
 and exercise some of our developed adulthood
 maturity, think it could be a really invaluable time
 which could better inspire further free conversation
 We could have 30 different speakers, sharing the
 most concise and poignant gems from the last 10
 years of life in a span of 1.5 hours. Now, I understand
 that we feel a natural resistance to anything that feels
 like artificially imposed structure, so I don't want to try
