Homecoming Queen

Check out this article about a girl with Downs Syndrome becoming Homecoming Queen.

"Kristin has a lot of friends - she likes everyone.  It doesn't matter if you're tall or short, pretty, not pretty, smart, not smart - she likes everybody.  She has great friends."

This reminds me of a line in a song by Bill Mallonee that I have never been able to get over.

"I suppose there are benefits of being retarded/At least your life's a string of moments unguarded."
