In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Love's Kitchen in Meridian

In recent years, an open kitchen for the poor, which began in one of our predominantly Black neighborhoods, received some start-up resources to build a larger permanent structure just north of the frontage road along I-25 in Meridian. Widely known as Love's Kitchen it quite simply provides free meals for those who need them. There may be some question about the ability of the needy to get transportation to the Kitchen now, but the organization overall appears successful in the mission it has undertaken. Churches and private donors, as well as private donors through churches, are some of the supporters.

As the holidays approach, we sometimes are heartened to learn of the efforts of organizations like Love's Kitchen in providing such direct, needed and welcomed help to the poor. Meridian has this one.
