I remember that prom night wasn't really cheap for anybody. What I saved on renting a tux went to pay for dinner and my date's corsage; what she saved from working all winter went to pay for her dress. In my opinion, it's not something you absolutely must go to – the longer I've been out of school, the less it has mattered that I went to prom. But I hate the thought of someone not being able to go because he or she couldn't afford to.
That's what made Friday's report on free prom dresses really stand out. It showed how a good idea to help someone can expand to a major cause. We'd love to know what you thought of it and what you think of prom in general.
