View: 1288Excerpt from Wo-He-Lo, 1999-2000 Then I said softly to myself 'that must have been the Sun! Dread and fear. Careless indifference. Joyous anticipation. All of these were media-enhanced responses as the calendar turned to 2000. Someday our children and grandchildren will ask us to describe that year and what will our answers be? That, just as students did in 1940 and 1960 and 1990, we discussed literature's relevance in our lives, figured math prob lems, experimented in chemistry lab. That, just as students did in l 950 and 1950 and 1970, we complained about dorm rules, fell in or out of love, played basketball. That we celebrated Homecoming and suffered from small-town blues. That we knew everything and sometimes nothing. That we both feared and longed for change. That we loved tradition, and hated it. That we learned how to be disciplined leaders, loving parents, useful citizens. We'll tell them how East Central Community College was a beginning and an end, and that every day is a fresh start, anoth er chance, a new millennium. We'll tell them how the sun rose over central Mississippi pastures and in human hearts and how it rises there still.
