Prom

It’s prom season again, and I’m loving the creativity used to ask for a date.  These boys got it right!


A high school senior from Kansas asked a girl with Down syndrome to go to the prom with him.  He said, “She is one of the best people I know.”  He said he wanted to make her happy because she has brought “nothing but joy” to his life since he met her.

He knew she loved Doritos, so he wore a shirt that said, “I know I’m nacho typical Dorito.  But I’m going to be cheesy, and ask:  Will you go to prom with me?”

She said yes…


In Ohio, a 17-year-old boy asked his 16-year-old girlfriend to prom by running 5-1/2 miles to spell it out on his GPS app.  They met on the high school cross-country team.  He knew she used the app as well and he asked her to check out the route he ran that morning.  The question mark alone took a mile.

She said yes…


So very sweet.  When we lose faith with all that’s going on in our country, just look at the upcoming generation.  They are our hope, they are our future, and they are being raised well.
