5 Reasons To Attend Your High School Reunion�|�Elaine Ambrose. I am attending my Fifitieth High School Reunion this weekend. I will not bore you with the details as I know that the only thing less interesting to you than your own reunion is mine. However, I point you to this article in Huffpo by Elaine Ambrose in which she gives her reasons for attending. Mine are a bit more complex. Of course, there is always the curiosity reason; but, more than that, it is a rite of passage to our final destination. By now, we have all realized that we only can control ourselves and what is between our ears. My favorite Stoic, Epictetus, said it best.. The external is beyond our control. Why worry about it? Bless the gift that is today. Seek happiness inside yourself.. Let the rest wash over you like an ocean tide. Have fun. But, don't look to others for your happiness. Now, let's party.
