In the piece, titled "The Reluctant Domer," Graham reflects on his experiences at the University of Notre Dame as he attended his twenty-fifth class reunion last summer.  Joining him was his father, Tony, who was back for his 50th reunion.

Graham writes, "So strange to be back. An ex-jock, an ex-Catholic. I feel like a sentence erased on a chalkboard, but still legible, still carrying meaning. It’s like going back to the town of my childhood. The streets are the same but so many of the shops and families have gone missing. I’ve gone missing, too."

You can read the entire piece at the magazine's Web site.
