‘One Tree Hill’ Cast Reunion

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Ready to feel like you are in high school again? Our favorite television drama series One Tree Hill reunited for a Friends With Benefits Charities event. The fundraiser was held in Wilmington, North Carolina where the cast helped raised money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as well as The Girls Project. The photos from the weekend are everything you would expect when these glamorous, beautiful people come together.

 

The show’s main stars: Hilarie Burton, Lee Norris, Sophia Bush, Bryan Greenberg, Tyler Hilton, and Antwon Tanner. All of whom played significant characters in the show’s nine-season run. The series still has a big following, so they knew how fans would react to their reunion. So, naturally, they took a ton of amazing photos to capture the monumental moment. Seeing all of them together again after all this time will transport you back in time. What’s even better? That from the uploads on their Instagram accounts, it was like no time has passed! Everyone looked like they were having so much fun together. Plus, they were doing it for charity, so that just gives us even more feels.

Sponsorship coordinator for Friends With Benefits Charities Events, Emily Barnhardt, talked about the One Tree Hill cast’s involvement. “Being able to have people look up to them and for those reasons to put into practice to raise money and focus on a philanthropic cause in doing so while they meet them, it’s pretty cool.” 
 

Sophia Bush took a series of photos and uploaded them to her Instagram. She captioned them:

“Can’t take us anywhere … #ReunitedAndItFeelsSoGood Thank you to @fwbcharityevents for bringing our #framily together for the belly laughs AND for great causes #TheGirlProject #StJudes”
It was really heartwarming to see all the cast members reunite in such a cool way. And, no, you are not the only one who is wondering if there will be any kind of reboot of the show. No reports on a reboot (yet!), so, for now, we’ll just reminisce on the good old days.
