It’s April 2020. Fifty years this June since I graduated Edwin Denby High School in Detroit.
This year, 2020, … the year of coronavirus … has forced schools across the globe to cancel traditional spring graduation festivities. Graduation for this year’s crop of seniors will be vastly different from the past.
All across Facebook users are sharing their high school graduation photos from years gone by. You can see mine here.
Many are taking part to join in a virtual tribute … a celebration of sorts … in a show of support for this year’s round of graduates who will miss out on the long-established tradition of donning cap and gown, waiting for their name to be announced, then promenading up the dais to be handed their diploma. At least today’s seniors will have their photos to share.
