This screenshot is from a YouTube video that shows 16-year-old Frankie Antonelii and Darius Rucker performing together at a high school talent show. How fabulous is that!?
Josh would be so jealous, and convinced it could happen to him!
You can't really read most of it, but since I could hear him trying to sound out the words, I happen to know that #5 says:
I will meet Rob Zombie in concert
"regular" people . Since we know this is a very special thing for Darius to do, I wouldn't want to give him false hope. But boy, what a story!
It gets better
As we continued to discuss how some language is more offensive than others, and how some people's ignorance is more discouraging than others, the mom went back to the site and realized that the author had changed the words to " a teen with Down syndrome."
In my mind, that makes this great story even more fantastic! Every time we change even one person's view, we have created a ripple effect that continues in ways we'll never know.
Thanks so much Darius Rucker (@dariusrucker on Twitter) and my new cyber-friend "Donna" for really making my night!
Watch the video - you'll be glad you did!
