  • What a shame I had a lot of fun at Richland in 1987.

  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I just saw that my school, my home was going to be demolished. I am heart broken. I have lost a lot in my life in the last two years, and been though a lot. Starting with the loss of a loved one, then dealt with my own health for several months. Then this past year watch my and my families homes demolished. Even forced to living in my car for a time. But the joy and the memories that would over come me and still do every time i drive by my high school just seem to make all my troubles disappear. I love driving by there and telling people that's my school. I have so many wonderful memories i just cant believe is going to be gone. It seems like every time i turn around im losing another piece of me, another piece of my life.
