April 21, 1995 – Friday – 8:15 a.m.

It’s Friday morning.  I went to breakfast, ate with Troy, then went to Spanish class and sat down.  Other students came in and took their seats.  Mr. Royal came in.  He sat down, took attendance and then said, “Are there any questions?”

No one said anything.  We were confused.

He continued, “I have been released from this institution after 28 years.  So, I’m going to release you after five minutes.”

He grabbed his books and walked to the door, and as he exited the room he called back, “Hit the lights as you leave.”

And he was gone.

No one in the class could move.

The dance concert went great last night.  The audience’s favorite part is the clogging.  And their favorite clogger is Lisa.  She is less than five feet tall, but the most adorable girl on this campus.

Tomorrow I am going to Mountain Meadows again to help this guy put up a TV antenna.  James is going with me.  I am to be back around 12:30 p.m. to get ready for the Dance Concert that afternoon.  Then that evening James and I and a few others are going to Boone for pizza and a movie.

The last week of April is almost here, then May will be.  In three weeks I will have already said goodbye.

So this is life, huh?

Greetings and farewells.

That plus the love shared in-between.

Love is God.

God is love.
