One of my favorite lifelong quotes is by Benito Juárez:  “Entre los individuos, como entre las naciones, el respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz.”

"The purpose of this site?  I hope multi-cultural, multi-lingual, international AHS alumni will have a positive impact along with classmate conviviality.  We as a group have had advantages denied to most of the world, so even though we aren’t super-heroes, as a group maybe we can make an incremental and positive changes."

Happy 10th Anniversary!!  

I launched this site on September 3, 2011 and have enjoyed it.  Everyone has been most polite, and of the several hundred registered on the site, I have only had to remove two ladies who were repeatedly abusive.  I can overlook rudeness once, but that's about as much s##t as I am willing to take.

Remember, I fund and maintain this website free of charge to 1959-1969 AHS and contemporary  Mexico City classmates.  We had many expat parents whose children  sometimes attended for a year or two but graduated elsewhere; they still qualify to join the site.  There are 41 US states, 13 Mexican states, and 11 other countries represented in my database.  Regardless, there are over 400 names on the "Missing Classmates" list (at left).  I ask for your help in locating our contemporaries and directing them to me to join the site.

You may disagree with my occasional essays, politics, social leanings, economics, style (or lack thereof), content, opinions, appearance, spelling, hairstyle (I'm bald, btw), accent, reading habits, or anything else about me, but as long as you make an evidence-based case I will try to listen with reciprocal politness and respect.

I don't spend much time updating the site, and I assume its value is primarily for classmates to keep in touch with one another through the private messaging system.

Here's how you can help keep the site lively:  Please make suggestions and send content as YOU keep the site interesting through updates to your profile or information you feed to me. 

Hasta luego, and good health!

Leigh Lockwood

P. S.  Maintaining the In Memory page does make me sad.  For example, there are 31 deceased from the class of 65 who either graduated with us or another institution the same year.

Marilyn Vos Savant was asked, "Why is it that our high school experiences occupy such a prominent place in our memories?"  Her answer, "During high school, we develop the most vigorous adult bodies we will ever have.  At the same time, we possess the least amount of sense we will ever have.  This combination produces many memorable moments."
