For high school students, prom is one of the most important school events, signaling both the end of school and the start of maturity and a new life. It’s a happy moment, but it takes a lot of planning.
Shannon Purcifer, a 16-year-old girl from the United Kingdom, couldn’t wait to go the prom, but she didn’t go since her classmates made fun of her. Shannon’s life had been difficult, as she had suffered from various maladies, including rheumatoid arthritis and ulcers, but she had purchased a beautiful gown for the big day, but had ultimately decided to stay at home.
Her classmates made fun of her illnesses so badly that the girl thought she couldn’t walk.
Claire, her mother, posted about the incident on Facebook:
“If Shannon had gone to the prom tonight, she would have worn a wonderful dress. But “thanks” to her bad colleagues, she didn’t want to go to mix with the mess that made her feel so miserable. For a girl who had so much to fight at such a young age…
She is one of the strongest young women I know, and her mind is even stronger. I love you, darling!”
Strangers and friends began giving after her mother’s message went viral, so she could give Shannon the ideal prom she deserved. Shannon’s private prom was a success; 120 bikers arrived to show their support and to accompany her to the reception. When she witnessed this, her mother collapsed on her knees and sobbed.
The prom drew 100 individuals and was a fantastic evening. students’s wickedness in comparison to weaker students in schools impacts everyone. If you know a child going through something like this, call a teacher right away!
