What a wonderful heart-warming post to end the day! Thanks to SB for sharing.


There is reason to hope, right? This kind of stuff [read: people behaving like kind, accepting human beings] makes me tear up in happiness.

<3 this.

Cassi Renee

Thank goodness for generational change!


After what went down with SB, it must have been nice to see that the meanies are the exception and not the rule at SB's high school.

I don't even know Prom King and Boyfriend but I'm thrilled for them that they were fully supported by their fellow students.

That's really sweet.


It's very nice to read that some children are brought up, or become of their own accord, accepting of everyone. It's a small counterbalance to all the bullying and other disgusting stories of non-acceptance we hear in the news on a daily basis. Thanks for sharing. I hope SB had an amazing time.

Totally repeating lanes' comment, word for word:
"There is reason to hope, right? This kind of stuff [read: people behaving like kind, accepting human beings] makes me tear up in happiness."

As has already been stated by others above, it's nice to see that meanness is not the rule at SB's school.


Wow! That says so much about the kids in her school, and probably a lot about the parents as well.

Susan Walker

That is amazing!

It reminds me of a blog post of mine from a few years ago (you probably read it at the time) where a bunch of middle school & high school kids cheered on a girl with Down's Syndrome as she sang "The Climb" in a talent show. They treated her like a true celebrity. I sat there with tears streaming down my face the entire time--proud of the girl singing (to have the courage) and proud of the kids in the audience who didn't let another's disability get in the way of their kindness.

In many ways, this world's come a long way.


That gives me so much hope for the generations to come.

Busy Bee Suz

That makes me so happy!!!!!!!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen

Hooray! What a great story. Gives me hope for humans.
