On CNN news earlier, I heard a precious story about an 18 year old senior high school student named Kristin Pass who was recently named homecoming queen at her high school in Texas. You are probably wondering why I am writing about this….

Kristin isn’t your typical blonde haired, blue eyed cheerleader type of homecoming queen. She is beautiful inside and out and special – she has Downs Syndrome.

The three hundred plus students in her senior class overlooked the sterotypical nominees and voted Kristin to be their Queen! What a touching story and a true testament of the beauty of a special needs child – they really can bring out the best in a person and teach you real life lessons.
