Rural Georgia school holds first integrated prom

Even though my immediate reaction was, "Their first? Just *now*, in 2007?", I think this is worth celebrating. We all progress at our own pace.

Rural High School Has First Integrated Prom

Demetrius and I married 20 years ago this August. Like any couple, we've faced our share of challenges, but those have had more to do with living under the Bush economy, and trying to secure the proper education and services for a son who is classified as both special needs and gifted. In fact, it's often easy to forget that there's anything "different" about our family in the eyes of some people.

But anyway, kudos to the young people at Turner County High School who decided that this was the year to make a change, and hold their first official, all-school senior prom.
