Every other year, we hold a black light pep assembly. It’s similar to our other assemblies…except everything is done in the dark. Our cheerleaders stunt, our guard and pom and kick squads dance, our drum line performs all under black light. They wear various white and neon attire which glow bright, while everything else remains unseen.
I’m so impressed every time.
But as incredible as the performers were, one moment really stands out.
The first thing they did was introduce all the spring sports. All the atheletes run through our ginormous teepee, while the seniors are announced. The kids in the audience cheer on their friends. It’s sweet.
But when they announced our special olympians the crowd went crazy. I mean it was nuts. The whole school cheered as if they were all rooting for their best friend.
It was heaven.
Like, honestly. Heaven.
On earth, as it is in heaven.
