It was also reunion day for me as I reacquainted myself with physician colleagues from my original medical training program at Boston City Hospital in the early 70s.  I had not seen them for some 40 years.  It is always a strange phenomenon to me that the passage of so much time does not erase the emotional ties and ease with which you make reconnections.  It was a great day all around.  It is part of the juice that propels me to be a worthy representative of my fellow Democrats at the National Convention in Charlotte.
