A young woman named Lava Barwari felt extremely lucky to graduate from High School. Not because of difficult courses, too much homework or any of the usual reasons. But because her mother was once on Saddam Hussein’s official “Kill List”, and Lava almost didn’t make it out of Iraq.

high school graduation Going to a high school reunion this summer? How long has it been since you saw your former classmates? When you think about it, the answer might surprise you. After graduation we all go our separate ways. And it’s just so easy to lose touch.

This summer, people across the country will reconnect with friends they haven’t seen in more than a decade. Getting ready for a high school reunion can be an exciting experience. You’re eager to see everyone and reminisce about old times. But the weeks leading up to the big day can be surprisingly stressful.

Sometimes the thrill of catching up with classmates is overshadowed by feelings of apprehension.

regretA recent study revealed that most people have some pretty significant regrets. Of course. We all have things form our past that we wish we could change.

This study produced a list of Top Ten regrets. It didn’t hold many surprises. Though we come from wildly different backgrounds, we all share common experiences.

The study concluded that most people spend at least 45 minutes dwelling on their personal regrets every week. No surprise there, either. We can’t help thinking about things that went wrong in the past, and inadvertently torturing ourselves by pondering what we should have done differently.

Number 6 on the list of regrets really caught our attention. It’s something that many of us at PeopleFinders think about each day:

reminding Laurie with her sister Kathy, aunt Peggie and brother Kevin

Laurie with her sister Kathy, aunt Peggie and brother Kevin

Jeri is a people finding sleuth who goes by the nickname “Sherlock”. She has utilized The PeopleFinders Network to find hundreds of people, and was kind enough to share a few of her success stories with us. One of our favorites is about a woman named Laurie…

Laurie was separated from her mother as an infant in the 1940’s. She would never see her mother again.
