Growing up as a kid we always looked forward to that day. To dance with your dad, uncle, grandpa, or the man in your life that is your hero. These days some families have 2 moms, or 2 dads, or no mom or no dad, but anyone who you love including mom can step in and go with your little girl. That's one of my best memories from growing up, and my little girl got to attend her first dance for herself last year. She loved dressing up and getting her hair done and put on the 'princess' dress. A woman complained about being offended about some kids not having a dad, or male figure, or that not all girls want to go to dances as not all little boys want to go to baseball games, which is true but on the notice we got for my daughters dance it said anyone could attend. Banning the dance for these girls is mean and heartless,. Please don't let them stop a tradition that we've had for so long, after all we are the same state that had to take out a prayer monument in our high school. Its getting out of control.
