This is a story from my prom. Throughout school I had on and off dated a good friend who has spina bifida. Part way through the night, I noticed he was looking glum. When I asked him what was wrong, he looked at our friends and told me he wouldn't be able to dance and could only watch everyone else enjoying themselves. My response to him was wait. So we did. Finally a slow song came on, we went to the dance floor and I sat across his lap, arms around his shoulders and swayed. That was 14 years ago but it showed him that nothing in life is impossible.
