Allman, Canisius story evoked lots of emotions
Sean Kirst’s article about Gregg Allman’s concert at Canisius High in 1976 was a wonderful lesson that touched on a wide range of emotions involving the powers of rehabilitation, marriage, celebrity, kindness and finally, education. However, the piece also left me feeling a little ambivalent.
With the mindlessness of today’s social media outlets, I highly doubt a genuine, discreet event like this is even possible anymore. So congrats to everyone involved in that heartwarming tale that took place 40 years ago. Unfortunately, things like that are truly a thing of the past.
