Reflections of a DG alumna

There I sat in a sea of red – my hands trembled in my gown-covered lap, and my legs were crossed, one over the other, as my heart raced. Someone was speaking to the crowd, but I wasn’t listening. I looked to my right, then to my left. I recognized everyone, and yet no one….
