Dea will be a senior next year at Pinkston H.S. and they have a crossover ceremony to celebrate.
We took him to get a suit and it was really great to see him all dressed up. Trey was able to steer him away from the saggin' suit pants and had a great dialog about learning the ability to crossover into lots of different worlds, not just dressing, or living for that matter, for the ghetto.
He looked smashing.
Smashing, but he won't smile for pictures.
He will, however, throw a sign.
But doing it in a suit, standing in front of a Coke machine and holding a candle somehow neutralizes the whole thing.
Thank you Lord, that you have grown this child into a young man who has a vision and hope beyond today.
