a prom story

Okay - here is a link to the story on our district's special friends prom. I don't know how long they keep their news stories up so I won't keep it up forever.

If this doesn't at least make you choke back a tiny tear, your heart is cold and you should be frightened. Okay, I exaggerate. But seriously - check it out. It was such a FUN night. This is what makes life good. This is why I go to work every stinkin' day.

Thanks, Jacque, for the link!

Mel, this was so awesome!!! What a GREAT event!! The video was even better than the story. How cool is that that these kids get the same great memories that we had as high schoolers too? So many of our challenged classmates didn't come to these things because they were scared they would be made fun of. Things like this prove they won't be made fun of and that they get to have the same fun as everyone else! Hopefully this will prove to those kids that they can go to the whole school prom now and be just fine and have just as much fun!!! YAAAAYYY!!!!
