The news story “A night to dance!” in Friday’s Newsday made my day.
Emily O’Rourke and Brooke DiPalma showed wonderful character and kindness in going to their prom with Jason Keller and Christopher Bartley.
These young men, who have special needs, looked so delighted to be a part of this prom party, and I’ve no doubt they all had a wonderful time. Everyone looked great in the picture and it always means so much to be accepted and admired for who you are.
This is a terrific lesson for teenagers and, really everyone, to know that we are all in this life together and no one will ever regret a kindness.
