Kamm: Reconnecting w/High School Mates

Kamm: I finally found my place on 'FaceBook' last month and, of course, friended and was friended by family and friends. But now a strange thing has happened as I look for old friends and classmates. My page is busy with all kinds of people I haven't thought about in decades. It's a little emotional and bittersweet as I reconnect with people I knew but haven't thought about. And it's humbling that they want to connect with me. Sharing our stories, the ups and the downs, the high school sweethearts who are no longer a unit, the most likely to succeed who didn't, old work friends who have fallen by the wayside, has caused some tears. There are some I haven't answered yet; I need a break before I open those old feelings of who we are vs who we thought we would be.

Question: Have you had a good or bad experience reconnecting with old friends and high school classmates via Facebook?
