Wow! I had so much fun at prom. I won’t lie. I wanted to get out there and dance. This one really put me in my feels for a lot of different reasons. Not only was my favorite color (blue) in full force on some of the most gorgeous gowns and jackets I’ve seen. And I was lovin it. The real reason though this was special to me (only a few people know this) but my grandfather taught at Laney for 9 years, this March made 15 years since his passing.
There was such a great spirit and excitement for this prom. To see their joy, witness them welcome each other and overhear them give praise and compliments to one another is only a testament to how strong, brave and enlightened these young women and men are. I’m thrilled to have spent a few hours with them, as some of them are celebrating for the last time together before going off to make their marks in the world.
So now get ready for a little overshare!!!
