    Tennessee Homecoming King Nominees Give Crown to Another Teen

    http://gma.yahoo.com/homecoming-surp...opstories.html

    Students Jesse Cooper, Drew Gibbs and Zeke Grissom were all nominated for homecoming king at Community High School's basketball homecoming ceremony.

    The teens got together and decided that the winner would turn over the honor to junior Scotty Maloney, who has Williams Syndrome, a neurological disorder that inhibits learning and speech.
    This is another example of parents who got it right....kudos to you all!

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Thank you for posting this. Sometimes when I sit here and read about all these savage killings I lose hope for humanity and a story like this brings it back.
