I’m Kayla and I will not be drinking before, during, or after prom this year.
“People of character do the right thing even if no one else does, not because they think it will change the world but because they refuse to be changed by the world.” As Christians, we are constantly told not to conform to the patterns of this world. For those of you who are already planning on staying sober on prom night, I affirm you for taking such a bold step. Contrary to former belief, those of you who made this decision are in fact a part of the majority, so don’t be discouraged just because the biggest parties are always the stories that sell. On the very first day of Prom week, nearly forty students made the decision not to drink after prom, and therefore signed the PROMise contracts that Mr. Brandt has been advertising. Not only does it make us accountable for our actions, but it also encourages others to follow the Example that is set simply by our signatures. What a great way for us to witness to our classmates! Whether you sign a contract or not, I hope you make a decision that will be pleasing in the eyes of your parents, teachers, and God on Prom night.
Seniors, you’ve finally made it to your last LHN dance, and one of your final milestones in high school. Congratulations!
I hope you all have an amazing time at Prom tomorrow, and truly make the night a safe and memorable experience for all the right reasons.
