I started this post with some ideas in mind for community, but we wind up going to a high school Holiday concert the other night and realize something that was sort foreign to me (from my own HS experiences) that sense of community in school, for the friendships that develop that may last a lifetime.
I was also was struck by the fact in a high school made up of around 1,600 students, almost 300 of them are involved in the school bands, choruses, drama department and the color guards.
Another idea had struck me as to community, and that is the WordPress community. People from different walks of life, places, ideas who share with each other and are interested in what others post whether pictures, words, stories and where they are in life.
It’s a community that I’m happy to be a part of, to share my thoughts, see others’ experiences. It has become part of my life. So I thank all of you for what you share.

It’s always a special feeling to see kids perform – you know they have put a lot of time into practising for this moment and, as you pointed out, these bonding times create the foundation for life-long relationships.
Happy holidays to you and yours.
The WordPress community had been both informative as well as inspiring… and entertaining… and I could on and on. I’m fairly new to the blogging world and have got to thank it for keeping my pen penning. Have a wonderful holiday.
Though I don’t deny the importance of local community, it is the more global WP communitity that opened me up to a whole ‘nuther world of people I never would have found otherwise. The area I live in is rather…near-sighted.
I couldn’t imagine being in a HS of 1,600 kids! In my graduating class of 151, everyone of us was a part of that “team.” We each had a purpose that we celebrated with every performance. I knew everyone in my class, personally. Was it your kids who were in the program?
