"And it's hard to say who you are these days-but you run on anyway
You keep running for another place to find that saving grace..."
Tom Petty, "Saving Grace"
Even though an American rock and roll star wrote this song in 2005, it describes me perfectly in 1982. I was in high school then in Kansas City. My life was what every teenager of the 80s desired: I had my drinking buddies, a girlfriend, and I was even captain of the track team. The gods of high school smiled upon me.
