Prom Season is Here
These girls can all hold their own - they don't need a male (didn't want to say man, and didn't want to offend them by saying boy, so I chose the word 'male') to make their life complete. I heard a sad story about a young woman who didn't go to her prom because she wasn't dating anyone and didn't want to without a boy. Looking back, she regrets not going almost everyday of her life. Isn't that sad?
Well, Olivia and her friends are fiercely independent. Smart girls. Sassy girls. Girls who know who they are and what they want. Their identity isn't wrapped around being in a relationship with a guy - so, they decided to go as a group to the Hardin Valley Academy prom tonight.
I wish I had been that smart and that brave when I was 17 - and alot of my friends feel exactly the same way. So hats off to you Olivia, Sierra, Samantha and Alex....you girls looked absolutely beautiful tonight.
