Photo Challenge: A Gathering of Young Men

This is a photo of my son and his friends posing before Prom. (My son is second from the bottom) These young men, weeks away from graduating high school and beginning their adult lives, displayed both their youthful, still mischievous selves and a blossoming maturity.


Here’s the whole rainbow of kids/young adults.


It’s good that these friends keep in contact with social media. The friendships you have in your childhood are among the most important of your lives.

This is in response to the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge.

Do you still have friends from school? I have a few, but have lost contact with many old friends. Good thing I have new friends to fill the void 🙂

    Adorable! I find prom photos so poignant for all the reasons you describe.


  2. I see some high school classmates when I visit my niece at the library but have not stayed in touch. Moving away from your hometown makes it a bit difficult. Many former classmates are reaching out through FB now but it seems they just want to see what others have done over the years. I had two friends from elementary until our mid twenties and lost them in the divorce. Can’t replace those childhood relations. We grow and change in the process not leaving much except for the past in common. No regrets.
