high school

A requiem for a building burned

Let me sing a requiem for a place I loved and hated; hated for its pain and loved for its family memories.

This was my high school, which was destroyed by fire on January 5, 2001.

This was the main building for a very small school. Given that my graduating class had 33 people in it, I think you can quickly understand that what you're seeing is the destruction of an entire school.

Sayonara, you old building, steeped with memories. You went down with quite a fight, it seems. There is, apparently, more truth than I expected in the statement "You can't go home again."
