    Dear Class of 2009,

    I've been working on this letter for five days. Actually that's not quite true. In reality, I've been working on this article every day since I heard one of your number take his first gasping cry for air in a hospital in Knoxville, Tenn.

    I've been planning what to say ever since I left him in that kindergarten room, only this time it was me gasping for air. I remember doing the math as I walked down the school hallway, not sure if I could find the strength to drive myself home without him strapped securely in the car seat beside me.
