Teenagers Acting Better Than Their Elders


I was going to e-mail this story about a town in Texas where the high-school kids voted a classmate with Down Syndrome homecoming queen to all of the people I know who have expressed horror or contempt for Sarah Palin for not aborting Trig. But that would have taken too long. And it wouldn’t change anyone’s mind. It would be nice to know how these teens emerged with such kindness and maturity from the angst-ridden, self-absorbed high-school years. If an educator had anything to do with it, we should be hearing more from her.
