Saint Stephen's Alumni - guestbook





Comments:
Once again I'm acknowledging July 2nd as a special day of remembrance for my friend Joan Lare - today was her birthday. She was my first friend; we grew up on Nice Street and graduated from Saint Stephen's in 1955. Joan was a good friend, was outgoing, and possessed a really healthy sense of humor.The most significant thing Joan taught me concerned the role of women in our culture. As kids, all of us on Nice Street re-enacted some of the movies we saw at the Towne. Nothing unusual in that, I know. Once, after a war movie, we gathered and decided to play our own version of the movie. I recall the discussion of who would be what character; one kid said Joan could be the Nurse from the movie. Joan stepped right up and said with no antagonism "No, I'll be a soldier." My immediate thought was "Sure, who wouldn't want to be a soldier instead of a nurse?" And so we played our version of the movie. Years later, when that recollection came to me, I thought, "Wow, Joan was the first women's libber that I ever met - and she was a little kid at the time." And I admired her even more. Joan left this life too early, but I invariably smile when I think of her.

Has anyone tried to collect data on the American Heroes from St.Stephen's that fought, lived and died in various Wars. It would probably be eye opening. I regret that I never served but I was a signature away from being a Marine. Your 82nd was legendary/

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

So, how many of us had to memorize Longfellow's poem and
recite it or maybe any stanza that Sister chose?
