Readers like TngldBlue who sent me this for our “Teens Don’t Always Suck” file, which is growing! So get this, about two weeks ago 15-year-old freshman Aidan Silverton decided he wanted to ask his friend Hannah Abdelkader to their homecoming dance at Grand Blanc High School. He asked his mom and his younger sister for help, so Aidan made a posted inviting Hannah and showed up with a dozen roses and also made a chalk drawing on the driveway, Hannah said yes, of course, because how you can resist a poster and roses AND a chalk drawing? Hannah’s younger sister grabbed a snap of all of this, posted it to Twitter, and it quickly went viral amongst the freshman class who decided to make the dance even more special for the couple, and nominated them for homecoming prince and princess.


“They’re some of the nicest people. They’re always smiling and having a good time,” said freshman Brogen Witucki, 14. “I think it’s because everyone loves them. And we’re really happy they’re able to go to school with us.”

Aidan and Hannah, who are in the same special education program at the high school, have been friends since elementary school. The teens are happy, friendly, outgoing and well-liked by their fellow classmates.

The article states the couple will also be dining at The Redwood Lodge before the dance on Saturday. I hope they have the BEST TIME EVER!

Aidan is going to sport a tie for the special occasion and Hannah will be wearing high heels – a first for the teen, her mom Julita Abdelkader said.

“She’s very excited,” Abdelkader said.


I am also VERY EXCITE! I get all sappy over teenage rituals like this and add to the fact that we all have heard cases of kids with special needs being bullied and here they are, price and princess, so take that suckas. I hope they have the most wonderful night ever. And I hope Julita takes a million snaps and has a pile of Kleenex on hand because all moms need that on big dance nights!
